Adventure is at the heart of what we do. Through the everyday adventure of Scouting, our members and volunteers experience challenges, develop new skills and create life-long friendships. #skillsforlife
Across our four sections, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, we offer a huge range of indoor and outdoor activities which the young people get to shape through their input. From visiting the fire station, and your first night away as a Beaver. Your first hike and learning to use a map as a Cub. Backwoods cooking, expeditions and community service as a Scout. Climbing, kayaking, and major 5 and 10 day expeditions as an Explorer.
Each section of our Group organises camps throughout the year from Frost Camp to Summer Camps. All sections camp together three times a year at our traditional Good Friday Breakfast, at our family camp in July and our Group Winter Survival Camp in November. There’s something for every young person, whatever their age, ability, and interests.
Our activities, camps and expeditions help young people grow in confidence. Our programme develops character skills like resilience, initiative, independence and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking, finding your way and first aid.
Research proves Scouts works. The Scouts 2017 Impact Report says Scouts are significantly more likely to show leadership skills, work well in teams, and be resilient. They’re a third more likely to help out in their local area, and they feel greater responsibility to their local community and to help others. Scouts spend more time with people from backgrounds different to their own because of Scouting.
We’re always looking for young people and volunteers to join in to help us build better futures and change lives. #skillsforlife
