Scouts

‘Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities that I wouldn’t normally get the chance to. I’ve just been selected to go the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden and that’s going to be awesome.’

Javaid, Scout

 

There are 102,000 Scouts in the UK today. Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader.

Outdoor activities feature prominently in the Scout Troop, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as  map-reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. There are also other adventurous activities such as rock-climbing, pioneering, orienteering, potholing, gliding, sub-aqua and international experiences to enjoy.

Uniform

Scouts wear a teal green shirt or blouse, navy blue activity trousers or skirt, and a Group scarf.

Promise

On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty
To God and to the Queen,
To help other people
And to keep the Scout Law
