The Scout Section is for young people, with a core age group between 10.5 and 14 years. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section in the Scout Group with the final two youth sections (Explorer Scout and the Scout Network) run by our Scouting District.

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 his or her 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 a large porition 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 Scuba diving, yachting and gliding.

The international aspect gives Scouting a special appeal and many Scouts now travel abroad during their time in the Section. For the 21st World Scout Jamboree in the United Kingdom in 2007, 40,000 young people from almost every country in the world got together to take part in the biggest ever gathering of its kind.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
