Scouts is the oldest section in our Scout Group, catering for boys and girls
aged 11 to 14.
take part in a wide variety of activities including:
on outings and visits
camping and learn about the outdoors
after their surroundings
are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of
their programme. "Participation" rather than meeting set standards
is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for
his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and
Activity Badges. Scouts take part in a balanced programme 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 Programme 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.
There is a weekly charge called “subs” of £1 and an annual
subscription of £27 which goes towards Scout Insurance, the UK Scout
Association and the development of the Group is a whole.
Meetings are held on Friday nights.
