Scouts are girls and boys aged from 10 and a half to 14 years old. Some will have been Beaver and Cub Scouts before joining the Scout Troop and we also welcome those who are new to Scouting.

Scouts are encouraged to become involved in the planning and development of their own program. A progressive patrol system is operated within the section – new scouts begin as a member of a patrol and progress to Assistant Patrol Leader and Patrol Leader, taking an increasingly active role in the organisation and leadership of the Troop.
Activities include camping, conservation, backwoods cooking, pioneering, map reading, climbing, day and night hikes and involve taking part in District and County activities with members from other scout troops and events.

Participation badges are awarded for annual membership and there are eight challenge awards for achievements and over 70 activity badges in the Scout section. Scouts meet at Shrewsbury House on Thursday evenings from 19.30 – 21.00, term time only.
