Introduction

To be a scout, all you need is an open mind, a sense of adventure, curiosity and enthusiasm. Scouting allows young people aged between 10 ½ and 14 ½ to make new friends in a safe and equal opportunity environment.  

We welcome young people of any race, religion or ability and give them the skills to achieve their full potential. We encourage team work whilst enabling young people to work at a level they are comfortable with and we facilitate learning through discovery. We become role models to our younger Cubs and beavers. 

Achievement is recognised by Badges that are displayed with pride on our uniforms, the ultimate goal is to achieve chief scout gold award, that is recognised by employers worldwide. 

Who are Scouts?

Scouts are a go-getting group of young people aged
10 ½ to 14 who: 

  • Master new skills and try new things

  • Make new friends

  • Have fun and go on adventures, at home and abroad

  • Explore the world around them

  • Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond


Week in and week out, they gather in groups called Scout Troops to conquer the small task of changing the world.
