About Scouts

The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 if they are currently a Cub and they feel ready to join Scouts. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section in the Scout Group.

Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. "Participation" rather than meeting set standards is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements, there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges. Scouts take part in a balanced programme that helps them to 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. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.

Being outdoors is important and half the Programme is given over to taking part in both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

The Uniform

Scouts wear a full uniform. Scouting is a uniformed organisation and the uniform tells everyone that you are a Scout. For instance, people can tell what group you belong to by looking at the colour of your scarf. The uniform consists of:

Teal green long sleeved shirt
Group Scarf
Blue Activity Trousers (optional)

How do you Join?

Perhaps you know a friend who is a Scout...ask them what it's like to be a Scout. See the schedule on this page to get an idea of the things Scouts do. You can email us to ask about spaces available. 

We will be glad to let your child come along to a few meetings to see if they like it. After that time, if your child wishes to stay and become a member of Scouting, we will give information on what to do next.
