Scouts is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years old who want to make friends and develop their widening interests in ways that are both educational and fun – young people who want a break from the usual after school routine of homework, games and watching TV.
Our activities are about action and involvement and mean more than just camping. Hiking, rock climbing, gliding, sailing, pioneering, canoeing, parascending, abseiling, putting on shows and exhibitions, motor mechanics, electronics, photography – the list is endless!
Scouts are also given the chance to learn skills in survival, cooking and first aid.
There are opportunities to go abroad as well. A World Jamboree takes place every 4 years which UK Scouts can attend. The last two Jamborees were in Chile, South America and Thailand.
