Tell me more…

Scouts are the oldest section of the Scout Association which was founded by Robert Baden-Powell in 1907. It is open to both male and female between the ages of 101/2 and 14 years of age.

Scouts offer a wider and more varied range of outdoor activities than Beavers and Cubs such as climbing, canoeing, rafting, various types of camping and cooking. Scouts as well of having outdoor activities have a balanced programme which allows them to work towards gaining Challenge and Activity Badges, developing good habits of health and personal safety, indoors they can plan projects and expeditions using their Information Technology skills helping them to explorer the local community and the wide world in which they live and making new friends at home and aboard.

When a Scout reaches the age of 14 they have the opportunity to move on to Explorer Scouts
