THE SCOUT TROOP

 

A Scout Troop is for young people aged from 10 ½ - 14 years old (6-month flexibility applies). Scouts meet together as a Troop and work within a variety of small groups called ‘Patrols’ lead by a Scout Patrol Leader.

 

The Patrol Leaders work with the Leadership Team in setting the programme and in decisions affecting the Troop. The Patrol system is one of the important ways that young people can take responsibility for themselves and others.

 

A volunteer leadership team made up of uniformed Leaders and other informal Assistants and helpers will guide the Troop.

 

Scouting has a reputation as an outdoor organisation based on strong traditions of camping and other outdoor pursuits.

 

Scouts work towards a variety awards and badges which are awarded by taking part in the regular programme. Scouts also have the opportunity to gain a wide range of activity badges by working inside and outside troop meetings. Most of the badges and awards in Scouts require independent work by the scouts themselves. With hard work and regular attendance Scouts can gain the Chief Scouts Gold Award.

 

Most Troops will offer a number of events away from home during the year, and very often a summer camp. These are important to the life of the Troop, as they are the culmination of much of the training during the year.
