Scouts have adventures. From archery and climbing, through hillwalking, kayaking and mountain biking, to sailing and yachting. But it's not just about adventurous activities. We also have a go at arts, crafts, cooking and performance, go camping and on expeditions, learn new skills, offer service to our communities and explore our environment and the world around us.
Through all this we aim to challenge and stretch the lives of our Scouts, to develop independence, teamworking and leadership skills, and to be a valuable part of their community.
Scout Troops are the fourth section of the Scouting family, for both girls and boys between 10½ to 14 years old. The Troop is divided into a number of Patrols, each led by a Patrol Leader, an experienced Scout, along with an Assistant Patrol Leader. The Patrol is the basic operating unit for Scouts during activities, games and at camp.
