Being a Scout
When you join Scouts, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things.
Activities and what you’ll get up to
Build and develop your confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills. Explore you beliefs and attitudes and be creative. Gain independence and put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.
Scouts start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It starts with an award. Who knows where it might lead?
As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best. There are multiple available promises, both religious and non-religious, and we encourage Scouts to discuss the promises and chose the one that they feel most comfortable with.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
Moving up to Explorers
Eventually, it’ll be time embrace your next big adventure.
All of our leaders are trained volunteers working to make Scouts the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare.
