Our Scout Troop
Our Scout section is where the FUN and ADVENTURE really begins in earnest for our boys and girls (10 ½ – 14 years)
We aim to ensure that our Scout Troop is extremely active. This academic year we have 14-weekend camps on offer as well as a week-long camp. On these camps they will learn how to light fires without matches, cook for themselves, build their own shelters, to name but a few of the outdoor and character-building activities they will experience. Other adventurous activities include hiking (both day and night time), kayaking, climbing, archery. During their time in Scouts, they will learn not only how to fend for themselves and how to be a team member but also how to lead their team to get the best out of them.
We also compete against other scout troops in our District including camping and a cooking competition.
Along the way, they make new friends, learn many new skills, gain badges and by the time they are 14 years old, many of them have earned their Chief Scout Gold Award.
When they are 14 years old they join Explorers in the District where the fun continues and the activities get even more exciting and very adventurous.
