SCOUTS

Our members are aged between 10½ and 14, and they take part and enjoy an active, exciting, fun, and adventurous programme of activities.

We meet on Thursday nights from 7pm - 9pm. Leaders & Patrol Leaders should arrive by 6:45pm and everyone else by 6:50pm as the meetings start promptly. We spend most weeks between Easter and late September 'outside' and we don't take a break during the Summer holidays to make good use of the extra daylight as much as possible.

As a troop we camp at least once every year for a week, and there are many opportunities for weekend camps (including competitions and award based training).
