Scouts (For 10 1/2 to 14 year olds)

Welcome to the Scout Pages.

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 even on international trips.

Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.

The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. They can move to the next Section, Explorer Scouts, between the ages of 13½ and 14½.

Please look at our Controlled Facebook Page to see photos of our recent activity.  All photos are managed inline with our Group newsletter and web and  policy (available in our  welcome pack).
