In the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting.

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement, between Cubs and Explorers. We are young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years old, but you can join the Troop when you are 10 and you can stay until you are 14½  years old.

Our Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each led by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, with an Assistant Patrol Leader.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, and participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life. We take part in a wide range of activities, and if you want to be recognised for your achievements there are a number of Challenges awards and activity badges.
