The Scout Troop is the third section in our Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years with flexibility in the age range, allowing young people from the age of 10 to join. and then moving on to Explorers between age 13½ and 14½. Sometimes it is appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.
Scouts 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 be creative. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and occasionally on international trips.
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.
