SCOUTS

An overview of our Scouts

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. Scouts are usually aged between ten and half to fourteen years old and a Scout troop is split into Patrols with a Patrol Leader and Assistant Patrol Leader.

Scouts take part in a balanced programme that helps them find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents. Also, it provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes. Being outdoors is important and over half of the programme is scheduled to take part in traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.

The Scout Promise, Scout Law and the programme zones are the basis of the Scouts achieving the highest award of the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. The programme zones consist of; Beliefs & Attitudes, Community, Fit for life, Creative expression, Global and Outdoor & Adventure.
