SCOUTS 10 1/2 - 14 years
Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement.
Young people join Scouts at 10.5 and leave at 14 years old. The Scouts work for a number of challenges and activity badges with the ultimate achievement being the Chief Scout Gold Award. Scouts try and go on a number of camps throughout the year and exerience numerous activities such as archery, shooting and cooking outdoors. Our Scout Troop also take part in regular hiking and biking days.
At 14 years old they must begin their transition into the Explorer Unit. Within Lilford District we have numerous Units, please ask one of the Scout Leaders for details.
If you are interested in your child joining our Scout Troop please use the Contact Us page to send us your details. There may be a waiting list but we endeavour to get children into the Group as soon after their 11th birthday as possible.
