What is Scouting?
Scouting is a remarkable movement that brings amazing benefits and enjoyment to everyone involved – children, leaders, parents and everyone involved with the running of the group.
Through adventure, we help our scouts develop team-work skills, friendships, confidence, independence, responsibility and a ‘can do’ attitude to help prepare them for the wider world.
Everyone in our group takes part in many adventures & activities at weekly evening meetings, weekend activities in the term, and week-long summer camps (for the older sections). In a typical year, we will go climbing, cycling, caving, hammocking, canyonning, hiking, canoeing, abseiling, kayaking, swimming, fire-lighting, community visits, craft activities, raft building and many many more adventures.
Who is Scouting for?
Some people think Scouts is just for boys – it’s not – we have loads of girls too!
Be Prepared... the meaning of the motto is that a scout must prepare himself by previous thinking out and practicing how to act on any accident or emergency so that he is never taken by surprise.
What we have been up to.
We have a very active programme in place.
