Scouts are aged between ten and a half to fourteen years old.
Our Scout Troop meets every Wednesday evening between 7:00pm and 9:00pm.
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing. The main aims of the section are to encourage leadership skills, adventure and exploring the outdoors.
During investiture, a Scout will be asked to make the Scout promise and law:
The Scout Promise
On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to God
and to the Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.
The Scout Law
A Scout is to be trusted.
A Scout is loyal.
A Scout is friendly and considerate.
A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.
A Scout has courage in all difficulties.
A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.
A Scout has self-respect and respect for others.
Once a Scout is invested, they will take part in a Balanced Programme which consists of nine challenge awards including World Challenge, Skills Challenge, Creative Challenge, Outdoors Challenge, Adventure Challenge, Expedition Challenge, Teamwork Challenge, Team Leader Challenge and Personal Challenge.
Scouts also have the opportunity of earning 61 activity badges which includes badges in Climbing, Parascending, Orienteering and many more! There are also 15 staged activity badges which are awarded depending on the level of skill a Scout has earned.
The Chief Scout’s Gold Award is the highest award in the Scout section and is awarded once all the challenge awards and a selection of activity badges have been achieved.
