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 Troup is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10 1/2 and 14 years. There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from aged 10, and can move to Explorers between age 13 1/2 and 14 1/2. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional leads. Please speak to a leader if you feel this is necessary - we will always try to accommodate where we can.
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as wider spectrum of adventurous activites, from abeiling to zorbing. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a number of badges and awards that Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
