The Scout section 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 to be creative. We offer the Scouts the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and expeditions.
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.
A Scout Troop is divided into teams of young people called Patrols, each headed up by a responsible Scout called a Patrol Leader, and often with an Assistant Patrol Leader to help them. Patrol leaders are responsible for making sure that members of their team are supported when undertaking new challenges, and developing their teams sense of unity and teamwork.
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their program including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival skills and cooking, as well as a wider range of activities and skills. We teach skills such as first aid, personal safety, and DIY all while promoting responsibility and independence in our young people.
