Scouts

 

 

The best way to find out what we do is to contact us and come and see! But, here’s a little bit to wet your appetite…

The Scout Section is for all young people aged between 10½ and 14, no matter what your gender, faith, or whether you have any disabilities. A young person can come in to the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 15 years old.

Our Scouts meet at 7.00pm – 9.00pm on Tuesday Nights. Scouts is run by Nick Hirst, Mark Turnbull and Jordan Smith. They are also regularly supported by the Cub Scout Leader Emily Taker.

What do Scouts do? What badges can they get?

Scouts is largely based upon outdoor activities- “Everyday adventure”. Our scouts have many camps each year. They have a number of Challenge Awards and Activity Badges including the prestigous Chief Scouts Gold Award.

Being outdoors is important and taking part in both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities from from abseiling to yachting, form an important part of the activities.  Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.  The leaders try to provide a balanced programme that covers these “fundamental values” fo Scouting.
