Our Scouts are aged between 10 ½-14 years old who are the third youngest section of the Scouting family.
During their time in the group, Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a range of challenge awards and badges available that Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements.
Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.
Easily recognised by their distinctive teal coloured shirts, Scouts are organised in small groups called patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a patrol leader, and often with an assistant patrol leader as well.
The Scout Promise
There are a number of variations of the Scout Promise to reflect the range of faiths, beliefs and attitudes; and nationalities in the UK within Scouting. Further information about The Promise can be found here.
