Life as a Scout is an eye-opening adventure.

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

The Scout section is the third section in the Scout Group, following Beavers and Cubs, for young people aged between 10 1/2 and 14 years old. In their Troops, Scouts make friends with like-minded young people from all walks of life. Together, they will earn badges and awards by taking part in both indoor and outdoor activities.

When Scouts join they are ‘invested’ – making a promise to do their best and help others.

Earn badges, achieve awards and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime
