Scouts

At Scouts, you get the chance to try out lots of different activities where achievements are recognised with the award of challenges and activity badges. Meeting new people and making friends is what Scouts is all about.

The scouts programme helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit, and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes and just have fun with good friends.

Being outdoors is important, and half the programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.

We run a number of camps during the year, our most popular being water camp where the scouts compete with building and racing a raft, as well as participating in kayaking, sailing and other water sports! It gives them the independence and confidence to putting their scouting skills into practice and encourages their sense of adventure. Scouting is about being with friends, working as part of a team, and participating in the adventure and opportunities the outdoors brings.

We have two scout troops:
