What don’t Scouts do? At this age, we encourage girls and boys to take responsibility for themselves and each other, with older members leading a small team. They like being with friends and participating fully in the adventure of life. In the Troop Scouts:
- Develop leadership skills
- Learn emergency aid
- Spend nights away – the summer camp is often the highlight of the year
- Help others in the community
- Cook, both at home and at camp
- Adventurous and sporting activities – anything from abseiling to zorbing
- Learn survival skills
We are an active group who loves the outdoors and having fun. We are all about team working, learning new skills and pushing yourself just a little bit more.
Our group likes to hike, camp, light fires, kayak, climb, and will go out of way to find mud.
We normally have a week long summer camp full of activities. This year we are going to Braggers Wood in the New Forest, and we have booked some exciting new activities that we cant yet reveal as it’s a surprise for the scouts!
We have just returned from Strategy, a national multi activity scouting competition, where our scouts retained our second place title for the second year running. Everyone had an amazing time and we’ll be back next year to have some more fun!
