10½ to 14 years

Life as a Scout is an eye-opening adventure.

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

The Scout section is the third section in the Scout Group, following Beavers and Cubs, for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years old. Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader.

In their Troops, Scouts make friends with like-minded young people from all walks of life.Together, they will earn badges and awards by taking part in both indoor and outdoor activities.

When Scouts join they are 'invested' – making a promise to do their best and help others.


Earn badges, achieve awards and enjoy the adventure of a lifetime!

Scouts are encouraged to learn by doing, so our Scout Programme is filled with adventurous activities to develop their confidence, independence and skill set.

With their Scout Leader, Scouts will plan a variety activities. You can expect Scouts to get involved in activities such as:

  • community impact projects
  • creative activities
  • backwoods cooking
  • camping
  • hiking
  • sports
  • and water activities.



Everybody knows that Scouts love badges that get sewn onto the uniform. There are three sorts of achievement badges; activity badges, staged activity badges and challenge awards. Scouts will work towards some of these during their meetings but are also encouraged to work towards badges of their own choice at home so if you are stuck for something to do, have a look at the links for inspiration and encourage your Scout to bring the evidence of their effort in to show the Leaders and other Scouts.


Activity badges

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which allow Beaver Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.

Staged activity badges

These are similar to the Activity Badges above, but have different levels of achievement and can be carried through from Beavers to Explorers.

Challenge awards

Gaining a challenge badge involves accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Colony or community. There are several challenge badges across a number of themes, from the physical and outdoorsy to challenges dealing with the local community or issues connected with the Scouting world.

Scouts learn skills that are essential to building their character, helping others and developing an awareness of the world around them. Scouting helps young people to develop:

  • the ability to work effectively in a team
  • leadership skills
  • problem solving skills
  • communication skills
  • and a sense of responsibility.
