Scouts 10 ½ – 14 year olds
‘It’s good to get out basically. I wasn’t too keen to go to Scouts to begin with but now it’s a good laugh. All the activities we do are fun and I’ve made loads of great mates.’
Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.
