The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10 and 15 years. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section in our Scout Group.
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their program.”Participation” rather than meeting set standards is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognized for his or her achievement there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges. Scouts take part in a balanced program 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 Program 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 yachting.
Scouting is about being with friends, as well as making new friends, working as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
Our Scout troop have been participating in many activities this year, including multiple camps, abseiling, assault course, campfires, canoeing, first response course, high ropes, and swimming.
We have one Scout troop called Typhoons which is broken down into Patrols, each having a Patrol leader. Patrol challenges and competitions encourage problem solving and teamwork.
Typhoons Monday (term time) TBC
All our leaders are unpaid volunteers who have completed Scouting training.
