Scouts is the fourth section in Scouting, and is for boys and girls aged 10½ to 14.

Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme from archery to expeditions.

There are many awards that Scouts can work towards, completing Challenges to get the Chief Scout’s Gold Award.

However, taking part and having fun is just as important as what you achieve as a Scout.

The balanced programme of activities encourages Scouts to find out about the world in which they live, know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and develop their creative talents. There are also opportunities to explore their beliefs and attitudes.

Being outdoors is really important and Scouts love to learn new skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
