‘Scouting gives me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends.’
Scouts aims are to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills. This is in addition to encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. It offers the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.
Scouts encouragingly work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects. This can involve community-based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.
The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years.
