Scouts are young people aged 10 1/2-14 years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges awards and activity badges.
Being outdoors is important, and half the programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.
We have 2 large and active Scout Troops which meet at Southwell Scout HQ, Bishops Drive, Southwell, NG25 0GD. Please email using our contact form regarding places.
