Scouts are at the age where they can experience the true adventure and potential that scouting has to offer.
We aim to give scouts a wide range of experiences so they can learn some new skills such as knife, axe and saw training.
Our Scouts are actively encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme with a number of Challenge Awards and Activity Badges to be achieved.
Being outdoors is an important part of our scouting and our programme is geared towards traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as a wide range of activities.
Who runs it?
The Scout group is run by a team of adults, all of whom have day jobs and volunteer their time freely. Background checks are carried out on all adults within Scouting before they are permitted to work with the children. Leaders are also trained through the Scout Association adult training programme.
How does it work?
The Scout Group is organised into four patrols – Panther, Eagle, Stag and Wolf. Each patrol is led by a Patrol Leader, supported by an Assistant Patrol Leader. The Scouts take part in a wide range of activities, and can gain badges through the structured programme.
The Scouts gather in patrols for flag break and inspection at the start of each meeting and flag down at the end. It is important that Scouts arrive in uniform ready for flag break at 7:30pm prompt, so that the meeting can get underway quickly. Mobile phones should ideally be left at home, but if they are carried for safety reasons they should be switched off during meetings.
