Scouts are aged between 10½ to 14 years.
They ignore the butterflies, jump in and go for it! Scouts meet in groups called Scout Troops each week to take part in lots of interesting and challenging activities – achieving anything they set their minds to, having lots of fun along the way.
- Master new skills and try new things
- Have fun and go on adventures, at home and abroad
- Make friends
- Are curious about the world around them
- Help others and make a difference, on their own communities and beyond
- Prepare to go on to join the Explorer section, if they choose to.
Scouts work towards activity badges and awards, culminating in the Gold Chief Scout Award for those who have completed all the challenges. They will get the chance to try new things, spend time exploring things they already enjoy and take part in camps and events.
All the Groups in Romsey District currently have active Scouts troops, meeting on different evenings of the week, so there should be plenty of choice near you. You will be invited to go along and try a few meetings before you commit to joining. We are happy to offer help with purchasing the uniform and paying for subs and trips as we believe that Scouting should be open to everyone; please ask for more details.
You don’t have to have been a Cub to join the Scout section.
Like all our sections, Scouts are run by dedicated and enthusiastic teams of adult volunteers – but we always need more adults to join in the fun! If you as a parent are willing to join a parent rota, or even to come along more often, it may help your child to join Scouts sooner. We understand that, at this age, your children may value time away from you with their friends so please do consider helping with younger sections or on the Group committee if you’d still like to support them within Scouting.
