Scouts (ages 10½ to 14)

Jump in and get muddy. Give back and get set. Scouts ignore the butterflies and go for it, and soon so will you.

Being a Scout

When you join Scouts, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things. Here’s everything you need to know..

Activities and what you’ll get up to

Build and develop your confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills. Explore you beliefs and attitudes and be creative. Gain independence and put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.

Badges and Awards

Completing badges and awards challenges you to do more, learn more and be more. See what’s on offer and start your journey to the top.

The Scout Promise

As a values-based movement, we all make a “promise” – an oath that helps us to be our best. Each section has a different promise which can be changed for different religous beliefs.

Uniform and badge placement

You don’t need a uniform as soon as you join Scouts – you can get one after a few weeks, once you’ve settled in. You’ll soon start earning badges and you’ll need to know where to put them!

Moving up to Explorers

Eventually, it’ll be time to say farewell to Scouts and embrace your next big adventure.

Scout leaders

All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Troop week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
