What do I need to be a Scout
Scouting is about having fun and learning as part of a team
Scouts is the third section in Scouting, and is for boys and girls aged 10 to 14. Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme, from archery to expeditions. There are many awards that Scouts can work towards, completing Challenges to get the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. However, taking part and having fun is just as important as what you achieve as a Scout.
The balanced programme of activities encourages Scouts to find out about the world in which they live, know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and develop their creative talents. There are also opportunities to explore their beliefs and attitudes.
Being outdoors is really important and Scouts love to learn new skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

Want to be a Young Leader?
Young Leaders are Explorer Scouts, who are between the ages of 14 and 18 who choose to devote a large proportion of their time in Scouting to service in another Section.
The Young Leaders' Scheme helps Explorer Scouts to develop and grow as individuals. It allows them to make a valuable contribution to their community and give service to others. The scheme also helps them fulfil the service elements of their awards. Other young people involved in service programmes such us D of E can get involved too. Contact our Group Scout Leader David Fern for more information.
