WHAT IS SCOUTING ?
Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come in to the Troop at 10 and
may stay until they are 15 years old. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section in the Scout Group following Beaver Scouts
(6-8yrs) then Cub Scouts (8-10yrs). Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme.
"Participation" rather than meeting set standards is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for their
achievements, there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges. Scouts take part in a balanced programme that helps
them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping
fit and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.
Being outdoors is important and half the Programme is given over to taking part in both the traditional Scouting skills, such
as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
