The Scout section is for young people usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. The Scout Troop is the fourth section in the Scouting family.

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 their 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, anything from abseiling to zorbing.

There are also District & County events and competitions held during the year where teams can participate in cooking, night hikes, water activities and camping and can meet Scouts from other Troops.

We also have a number of camps during the year usually over weekends, with the highlight being a full week at the beginning of the summer break.

The troop have a varied programme designed to test younger scouts and for the older scout to learn how to lead and teach.

Most Scouts move up from the Cub Pack, although if you are new to Scouting you can still join us. To check for availability, please go to the Contact Us page and fill in the form. Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

Meetings times are Friday from 7.00pm to 9.00pm term times only
