What are Scouts?
The Scout section is for older children, usually aged between 10.5 and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14.5 years old. Scouts take part in a challenging, fun, balanced programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live; encourages them to know about their own abilities and helps them develop their creative talent. It also provided opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.
What do they do?
We hold weekend camps at Drum Hill and, when possible, an annual weeks camp around the first week of the school summer holidays. At Summer Camp we have activities like Inter Patrol competitions, Swimming, Canoeing, Camp Olympics, Expeditions and trips to local attractions.
How can your child join?
Please let us have your child's details by entering the 'Membership Application' email form on the Contact Us web page. Your child's details will be entered onto our database and one of our Scouts Regular Volunteers will contact you when your child is old enough and we have a vacancy.
Have you any Questions about Scouts?
If you have any questions about Scouts that your web search engine cannot answer, please ask us via our Contact Us web page.
We do not have enough Regular Volunteers (would you like to volunteer?) to entertain parents or other people who just arrive at any of our meetings without an appointment.
be advised that there is a Waiting List for our Scouts. If you child is
getting near 10.5 years of age you may wish to consider contacting another Scout Troop.
