Scouts

Scouts meet on a Friday from 7.00pm until 9.00pm


Scouts are a go-getting group of young people aged
10 ½ to 14 ½ who: 
Master new skills and try new things
Make new friends
Have fun and go on adventures, at home and abroad
Explore the world around them
Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond


Week in and week out, they gather in groups called Scout Troops to conquer the small task of changing the world.

Discovering the world

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.


Starting small, thinking big

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.


Chief Scout's Gold Award

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

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.


Adventure Challenge Award
World Challenge Award

Membership 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 Award

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. 


Leadership stripes

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. 



Moving On Award

Eventually, it'll be time to embrace your next adventure. Explorers awaits.


Activity Badges

There are also 77 Activity Badges for the Scouts to go for!
