Scouts are young people aged 10 ½ to 14 years old.
Our Scout Troop meets on Thursdays 7.15pm to 9pm.
Who are Scouts?
Scouts are a go-getting group of young people aged 10 ½ to 14 who:
- Master new skills and try new things.
- Make new friends.
- Have fun and go on adventures, at home and away.
- Explore the world around them.
- Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond.
What do Scouts get up to?
Just recently we’ve been up to several new, adventurous, and exciting things! Some of these include:
Discovering the world
Being a Scout is all about discovering the world on your own terms and making the most of what you have, wherever and whoever you are.
Alongside your new friends, you’ll master the skills that’ll help you weather the storms of life and try things you’d never get the chance to do at home or at school.
In June we went to Strategy, a massively popular camp every year with over one thousand other Scouts!
In September we went to Woodhouse Park and took part in various activities.
Starting small, thinking big
Scouts start small but think big. They stand up for what they believe in and make a difference on their doorstops, confident in the knowledge that their daily actions add up.
In a society that can often feel increasingly isolated and inward facing, Scouts build bridges and break barriers.
Throughout history, they’ve played all sorts of useful roles in society, and this legacy continues today.
In September we visited the Cotswold Canal Trust to learn more about the waterways history and future plans.
Listening in, lending a hand
Scouts seek out the answers to the big questions, and to the smaller questions that don’t seem to matter but really should. Most importantly, they say yes more often than they say no – whether they’re taking part in their first ever camp away from home, writing their first line of code, or accepting the last of the toasted marshmallows.
Following our visit to the Cotswold Canal Trust, we wanted to say a great big thanks and support all the work the volunteers there do. So, we did a litter pick along a 4-mile section of the canal.
We also learnt valuable First aid skills and practiced what to do in an emergency and how to give CPR.
Sound like fun? That’s because it is. All that’s missing is you.
