Scouts

Scouts belong to the third section of the scouting family and are easily recognised by their smart, dark green shirts. There are 3 Leaders in our Scout Section which is led by Skip (Mike) Jade and Andrew, a young helper Mike who is an Explorer Scout also helps out.

 

The age range is from 10.5 to 14 and Scouts often link from our Cub pack, but you can still be a Scout without having first been in the Cubs.

 

Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences, based around subject areas we call Programme Zones.

 

The zones vary slightly depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.

 

Together we help Scouts get the most out of their Scouting experience by including elements from as many zones as possible within the activities on offer. And, the older they get, the more input young people themselves have in their own programme.

 

Hiking in the dark. Travelling across Poland with just a backpack and three friends. Spending the first night away from home.

 

Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.

 

 

Once Scouts reach 14 they will start to network with our Explorer Group, the 4th stage in Scouting.

 

How Can I Join the Scouts?
