Scouts (10.5-14)

The Scout section is for children of all faiths and ethnicity aged 10 to 14. We have both boys and girls in our troops.

Scouts is all about encouraging and developing all our young members in independence, leadership & teamwork skills appropriate to their age and ability.

We run an active and varied programme, based around the six Programme Zones:

  • Scoutcraft & Adventure
  • Global
  • Community
  • Fit For Life
  • Exploring Beliefs & Attitudes
  • Creative Expression

What this means for our members is a fun combination of camping, hiking, watersports, climbing and abseiling, backwoods cooking, expeditions, games, cooking competitions, First Aid, charity events, family camps, orienteering, LaserQuest, air rifle shooting, pioneering, archery, craft activities, night hikes, incident hikes, wide games, Group socials – actually anything and everything we can think of as a Troop that fits into at least one of the Programme Zones!

PUMA TROOP: Meets on a Monday Evening 1900hrs – 2100hrs

LEOPARD TROOP: Meets on Friday Evening 1915hrs – 2115hrs

Although each troop has a selection of Warranted helpers and Parent helpers this is all done on a voluntary basis. We welcome, and at times need, extra support from parents if you can occasionally help please come in and speak to us.

Each troop can have up to 26 members.

For more information, to arrange a visit to the Troop, to volunteer as an adult helper, or to get your name on to our waiting list, please contact us.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Basics

The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½ years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.

A Scout Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, and often with an Assistant Patrol Leader.
