Scouts are 10½–14 years old.
Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called Patrols, led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.
Rock climbing, potholing, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they can get up to. They like being with friends and participating fully in the adventure of life.
In the Troop, Scouts:
- Develop leadership skills
- Learn emergency aid
- Spend nights away – the summer camp is often the highlight of the year
- Help others in the community
- Cook, both at home and at camp
- Adventurous and sporting activities – anything from abseiling to zorbing
- Learn survival skills
