What are Scouts?

Standards Camp teams 2008

The Scout Section is for boys and girls aged 11 to 14 years and offers an amazing array of activities designed to teach important life skills and get Scouts social and active!

Scouts, as a section, focuses on allowing young people to develop their confidence and teaches them how to work as part of a team.  Scouts learn essential outdoor safety skills as well as participate in a variety of physical and intellectual challenges.  The programs are designed to target each young person’s own special interests, encouraging them to enjoy their favourite hobbies using meaningful badges and awards.

Scouts is a great chance to make new friends outside of school.  Spending time camping or hiking with others your own age is a fun way to get to know people.

Action is at the core of all Scouting activities.  Whether they are tackling a river in a kayak or learning how to set up a tent, our program ensures that our Scouts never stand still.  At your weekly meetings you’ll learn the skills you need to plan, prepare and go on adventures, and by the time you’ve been a Scout for a few years, you’ll find yourself being able to take yourself on three-day hikes – just you and a group of your Scouting friends. You even get to choose your own menu and cook it outdoors yourselves!

At Scouts you’ll become a member of a Scout Patrol with approximately six other Scouts.  Your Patrol will work with other Patrols to form a larger Scout Troop.  Together you’ll make important decisions, set critical goals, and depend on each other to succeed. Scouting is youth-led, adult-supported.  As a Scout, you get to choose what you want to do, and your Leaders are there to support and advise.

Scouting helps young people to grow and develop as responsible, contributing members of society. It does this by providing opportunities and guidance for their physical, intellectual, emotional, social and spiritual development.

Scouts is defined as 'learning by doing'. We do this through activities such as camping, cooking, hiking, abseiling, canoeing, navigation, games, community involvement, environmental awareness, construction, water activities, leadership, first aid training etc, etc. The possibilities are endless.
