Scouts take part in a balanced programme that 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
The emphasis is on taking part and there are a number of badges and awards Scouts can work towards to recognise their commitment and achievements.
Being outdoors is important in the Scout Section and half the Programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills such as camping, survival and cooking as well as a wide range of adventurous activities, including anything from abseiling to yachting.
The chance to take part in international travel is also important for Scouts and the Troop is looking forward to a trip to Spain in summer 2015 which will give members the opportunity to gain valuable International experience. Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
