Scouts are the third section in the Scouting Movement and are usually aged between 10½ and 14 years old although a young person may join at 10 and stay until they are 14½.  Our Scout Troop meets between 7:45pm and 9:45pm on Wednesdays. For more information please pop in on a Wednesday evening from 7.45pm for a chat with a member of our friendly helpful leadership team.

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

 

It costs just £10 a month to be a member of our Scout Troop, which is paid by monthly standing order.

If you know of a young person who would like to join our Scout Troop or if you require any further information, simply complete the contact form below.
