Scouts (10½ – 14yrs)

Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader.

Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.

Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.

Scouts also work towards their badges. These include activity badges, challenge badges and staged badges. The Scouts are also encourged to achieve their highest award which is their Chief scout Gold award.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
