Scout Troop

Scouts is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come in to the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14 and half years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group.

Scouts 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.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

Suspension of Scouting

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a four-week lockdown in England from Thursday 5th November, The Scout Association has taken the decision to suspend all face-to-face Scout meetings, activities and events with immediate effect.  We expect these restrictions to last until 2 December, when the lockdown is currently scheduled to end in England.

We will continue to monitor and re-evaluate the situation based on the Government and Scout Association guidance, and will keep you all updated about when face-to-face Scouting can resume.

We hope that all of you, and your families, remain well and look forward to resuming Scouting later in the year.
