Being a Scout
Scouts are aged between 10½ and 14 years – the final section of our Group. Week in and week out, they gather in groups called Scout Troops to conquer the small task of changing the world.
When you join Scouts, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s the basics you need to know.
Scouts start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It starts with an award. Who knows where it might lead?
Activity & Staged Badges
Master something you love, or try something shiny and new. If it spurs you on or stirs your interest, we’ve probably got a badge for it.
All of our Leaders are trained volunteers working to make Scouts the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare.
