Thursdays 7.15pm – 8.45pm
What don’t Scouts do? At this age, we encourage girls and boys to take responsibility for themselves and each other, with older members leading a small team.
They like being with friends and participating fully in the adventure of life.
In the Troop, scouts:
- Develop leadership skills
- Learn emergency aid
- Spend nights away – the summer camp is often the highlight of the year
- Help others in the community
- Cook, both at home and at camp
- Adventurous and sporting activities – anything from abseiling to zorbing
- Learn survival skills
We take part in loads of activities as part of our programme, from archery to expeditions. There are many awards that we can work towards, completing Challenges to get the Chief Scout’s Gold Award, but taking part and having fun is just as important as what you achieve as a Scout.
We like being outdoors and learning new skills like camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities on offer from abseiling to yachting.
Scouts is all about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
You can join scouts when you are 10 years old and move up to Explorer Scouts between 14 and 15 years old.
