Scouts typically meet once a week during school terms, and sometimes during school holidays. At the meetings they will play team games and learn Scouting skills like hiking, hill-walking, camping, knots, first aid, cooking etc.

When they have met a set of challenges or have mastered a particular level in a skill they earn a badge to sew on their UNIFORM.

Scouts work in small teams called Patrols which are led by a Scout – called a Patrol Leader – and an Assistant Patrol Leader. Scouts will be involved in planning and running Scout meetings and activities and may be invited to Group and Scout County planning sessions to give their input on planned events. Supported by Adult leaders – known as Scouters, just one of the many SCOUTING TERMS you’ll learn – they take part in planning & running their own activities, programme and camps. They decide the menu, cook on camp, organise equipment & run activities – all in their Patrols. They learn about teamwork, about leadership and how to look after themselves.

Weekly meetings are only half the story. The real adventure is in the outdoors – hill walks up mountains, water-based activities, mini-expeditions, camps from one night to ten nights in length, community events like litter-picking, hostel stays, and sometimes overseas trips. Scouts love being in the outdoors with their friends and once they have the RIGHT GEAR, won’t mind a bit of rain or cold.

When your Scout turns 15 or 16 they will be invited to move up to VENTURE SCOUTS where the adventure continues with old friends from Scouts and new Venture friends.

A large group is a Troop, small teams are Patrols led by the Patrol Leader and Assistant Patrol Leader. They are Kind, Honest, Friendly, Trusted, Respectful and Brave.
