Live in the sunshine, swim in the sea, drink the wild air.

A bad day camping is still better than a good day working!

At home or abroad, on land or sea, this is where the real adventure starts.

Scouts typically meet once a week during school terms, and sometimes during school holidays. At the meetings they will play team games and learn Scouting skills like hiking, hill-walking, camping, knots, first aid, cooking etc.

The activities are all geared to allow each Scout to develop in the areas of Social, Physical, Intellectual, Character, Emotional & Spiritual growth according to their own abilities and particular interests.

When they have met a set of challenges or have mastered a particular level in a skill they earn a badge to sew on their uniform.

Scouts will be involved in planning and running Scout meetings and activities and may be invited to Group and Scout County planning sessions to give their input on planned events. They take part in planning & running their own activities, programme and camps. They decide the menu, cook on camp, organise equipment & run activities – all in their Patrols. They learn about teamwork, about leadership and how to look after themselves.

The real adventure is in the outdoors – hill walks up mountains, water-based activities, mini-expeditions, camps from one night to ten nights in length, community events like litter-picking, hostel stays, and sometimes overseas trips. Scouts love being in the outdoors with their friends and once they have the right gear, won’t mind a bit of rain or cold.

The uniform can be purchased from the Scout Shop. Click here to visit.
