Scouts meet on a Friday from 7.00pm until 9.00pm
Being a Scout is all about discovering the world on your own terms and making the most of what you have, wherever and whoever you are.
Alongside your new friends, you’ll master the skills that will help you weather the storms of life, and try things you’d never get the chance to do at home or at school - working with trained volunteers to achieve whatever you set your mind to.
Scouts start small but think big. They stand up for what they believe in and make a difference on their doorstops, confident in the knowledge that their daily actions add up
In a society that can often feel increasingly isolated and inward facing, Scouts build bridges and break barriers.
Throughout history, they’ve played all sorts of useful roles in society, and this legacy continues today.
This is the highest award a Scout can earn. To complete it, you need to complete all nine of the Challenge Awards, plus six Activity badges.
Challenge Awards are all about stepping outside your comfort zone. Try out something you wouldn't normally be interested in. Take the lead on something that scares you. Along the way, you'll unlock hidden talents and stand tall.
World Challenge Award
When you make your Scout promise, you'll be given your Membership Award. It features a picture of the fleur de lis - an international symbol, worn by Scouts all over the world.
Joining In Awards are given to those who always roll up their sleeves and get stuck in. You can collect one for every year you're a Scout, starting from your very first day as a Beaver right up until your last meeting.
Within their Troop, Scouts are part of a Patrol. A Patrol is a smaller group of Scouts, headed up by a Patrol Leader and an Assistant Patrol Leader. Patrol Leaders and Assistant Patrol Leaders are Scouts who are chosen to take on leadership responsibilities, such as welcoming new people to the Patrol or taking charge of a particular game or activity.
They wear leadership stripes to celebrate their hard work and make sure everyone knows who they are.
Eventually, it'll be time to embrace your next adventure. Explorers awaits.
There are also 77 Activity Badges for the Scouts to go for!
