Scouts are between 10 and half and 14 years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group.
We have male and female members. Scouts work toward being senior patrol leaders (these help the adult team run the troop) patrol leaders and assistant patrol leaders. Older scouts (14 plus) will move on to become an Explorer Scout within the Scout movement.
In our troop we are developing leadership skills, Learning emergency aid, spending nights away – the summer camp is often the highlight of the year, helping others in the community, cooking (both at home and at camp), adventurous and sporting activities – anything from abseiling to zorbing and Learn survival skills!
If your child is moving on from Cubs there is no need to join the waiting list, please speak with your Cub leader.
What we do
We have a very active programme and regularly take part in archery, climbing, hiking, canoeing, raft building and camping, plus anything the mind can think of in-between! We also take part in external activity/challenge days e.g. Bicton Park which included activities such as climbing, zip wires, kayaking and rafting.
We work towards badges; the main badge work is towards the Chief Scout Gold Award. We are currently starting to camp once a month on the Salcombe Regis Activity Centre to assist the scouts in gaining the Chief scout award. At this age, we encourage our members 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.
