About Scouts

Who are the Scouts?

Scouts is the third section in the Scouting family, after Cubs and before Explorers, and Scouts will usually be 10½ to 14 years old.

Scout Meetings

Our Scout Troop meets on a Friday evening, from 7pm to 9pm, and our Scout Leader is Alex Ball.

What do Scouts do?

Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and different trips and experiences – as well as having a lot of fun, games and activities at our regular meetings!

Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities. 

Our Troop is a friendly place for your child to join, with a lot of fun and activities!
