Scouts



The Scout Section is for young people aged 10 to 14.  Leaders in this Section offer more adventurous activities, putting the "out" into Scouting.  At the same time, the young people begin to take more responsibility for their own activities.  For much of the time, they work in Patrols, but other groupings are used to meet differing interests and needs.   The Scout Troop programme includes camping both in the District and further afield; and participation in District, County, and - occasionally - international events.  The formal side of the Scout programme is built round a range of progressive challenges, with the ultimate goal being the Chief Scout's Gold Award.
