Scouting Groups

 

Scouts

Meet on Thursdays 7.30pm – 9.00pm in the Scout Hut. 
Age range is 10 1/2 to 14 years.

A Scout Troop is for young people aged from 10 ½ - 14 years old (6-month flexibility applies). Scouts meet together as a Troop and work within a variety of small groups called ‘Patrols’ led by a Scout Patrol Leader. The Patrol Leaders work with the Leadership Team in setting the programme and in decisions affecting the Troop. The Patrol system is one of the important ways that young people can take responsibility for themselves and others.

Scouts work towards a variety awards and badges which are awarded by taking part in the regular programme. Scouts also have the opportunity to gain a wide range of activity badges by working inside and outside troop meetings. Most of the badges and awards in Scouts require independent work by the scouts themselves. With hard work and regular attendance Scouts can gain the Chief Scouts Gold Award.

A number of events away from home are organised during the year. These are important to the life of the Troop, as they are the culmination of much of the training during the year.
