THE ADVENTURE CONTINUES
About the Scout Section
The Scout Troop is the third section in our Scout Group, after the Beavers and Cubs and meet on a Wednesday from 7.15pm to 8.45pm.
The Core Age for the Scout Section is 10 1/2 to 14 Years Old. They can start at 10 Years Old and must leave before they are 14 1/2 Years Old
A Scout Troop is divided into small groups called patrols, each lead by a patrol leader, with a assistant patrol leader. Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting Skills, such as camping, Survival and cooking.
Pictured below are some of the Activities that your child will experience whilst being a member of the Scout Troop.
The Scout Program / What we do
Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a number of Badges and Awards that scouts can gain to recognise their Achievements.
Activity, Staged and Challenge Badges can be achieved as a whole Section working towards them on a Wednesday, or as an individual in their own time. Further information about badges and awards for the Scout section can be found here
Where to get the Scout Uniform
The Scouts Uniform is available from Melton Sports, King Street on the Pedestrianised Footpath located near the Cinema. www.meltonsports.co.uk

There is no Recommend Maximum Number for Scouts
This maximum number of Scouts is decided by the Adults running the Section
Our Scout Troop has a good Healthy Number of Young Members.
However if they had more regular Adult Support this would make such a difference to what they can offer the Scout Troop.
