Scouts (10.5-14 years)

If you are aged between 10½ and 14 then Scouts is for you. Scouts aims to build and develop your confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging you to explore your beliefs and attitudes and be creative.

It offers you the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and on international trips. Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.

Scouts work towards their Chief Scout Gold Award by completing 9 Challenge Badges and 6 Activity or Staged Badges of their choice. The Challenge Badges include: Adventure, Creative, Expedition, Outdoors, Skills, World, Personal Challenge, Team Leader and Teamwork Challenge.
