‘Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends.’

Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative.  It  offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.

Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.
The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years.

 

The troop meets on Monday evenings during term times at 19.30 until 21.30. Typical activities include Climbing, Pioneering, Hikes, Wide Games, Cooking and many other challenging tasks. Weekend camps are also arranged from time to time. If you are interested joining please contact us using the form below.
