Scouts range from 12 to 15 years of age.

The Scout Section represents the third stage of the Scouting journey.

The Scout section is based on adventure and putting the skills learned
in the younger Sections to good use. Scouts are encouraged to take on
responsibilities and to challenge themselves during the course of
activities they undertake.


Our Scout Section caters for young people
between the ages of 12-15 years.

The Scout Section meet on a Friday evening for 2 hours (7.30 – 9.30) in the Den.

What don’t Scouts do ??

At this age, we encourage girls and boys to take responsibility for themselves and each other, with older members leading a small team (‘Patrol’).

They like being with friends and participating fully in the adventure of life.

In their Troop, Scouts:

  • Develop leadership skills
  • Learn emergency aid
  • Spend nights away – the summer camp is often the highlight of the year
  • Help others in the community
  • Cook, both at home and at camp
  • Adventurous and sporting activities – anything from mountain pursuit challenges to sailing
  • Learn survival skills


Scouts are encouraged to organise and implement their own programme ideas as part of their Patrol’s and as part of the Scout Troop.


Scouts work towards earning activity or achievement badges and each week spend part of their
 meeting learning, developing and perfecting their Scouting skills.

Our Scouts take part in activities such as hikes, camping, climbing, watersports and Scouting





We also have a week-long annual camp at the end of june, sometimes this is overseas !
