Scouts is for boys and girls aged 11–14 years. Here, young people develop more complex outdoor skills in a modern, fun and active environment.

Scouts gives teenagers the opportunity to grow and develop with their own responsibilities with the support of their leaders and peers. 

Scouts organise their own activities and adventures which are targeted to develop specific skills and the individuals own interests.

These activities often demanding a greater level of risk management, giving young people endless opportunities to practice self-sufficiency. Scouts plan their own activities, including cost and transport arrangements, helping them develop their sense of responsibility, independence and problem-solving skills!

Scouting is youth-led and adult-supported, so life as a Scout is always full of excitement!
