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 even 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. Badges can be gained and life skills learned from many activities, and it’s a delight working with young people who are proud of their achievements.

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, after Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years. There is flexibility in the age range: young people can move to Explorers at any age between 13½ and 14½.

Our Troop meetings are on a Wednesday from 19:45 to 21:15

Nick Gore (Skip) is the section leader for Scouts.
