Scouts is for all young people aged between 10½ and 14½ years. Existing Cubs are able to join Scouts from 10 years and 3 months if they are ready and where they are working towards their Moving On Award. Scouts then move on to Explorers from the age of 14.
Our Scouts are offered a wide ranging and well balanced programme that challenges them and helps them to find out about the world in which they live. It 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 as well as developing important life skills such as leadership and team work.
Our focus is on the delivery of an outdoor based program as far as this is practical and we endeavor to deliver a program based on both traditional Scouting skills as well as adventurous activities, community work and personal challenges.
We look at local issues, support local events and organisations. We nurture and encourage exploration of the wider world both through International Scouting and international issues.
