We have a very active and varied program, both at the regular weekly meetings and at weekends, including skills training, camping, and hiking. The Troop is split into Patrols, each led by a more experienced scout – the Patrol Leader. The Scouts suggest and run activities for the Troop, with the adult leaders carrying out the longer-term planning and focusing on the progression of the individual Scouts.
We run camps and activities throughout the year ranging from back-to-basics camping skills, expeditions, and action-packed activity camps. We also participate in many district and County events such as cooking competitions and night hikes. Most camps the scouts have the opportunity to sleep under canvas as well as training weekends.
We are always on the lookout for help from Parents, friends, or relatives in whatever capacity you can to help us make the evenings run smoothly. Can you spare a couple of hours to volunteer?
Scouting began in 1907 in one country, the United Kingdom, based upon Lord Baden-Powell’s ideas and his book “Scouting for Boys”. But the book and programme proved to have great appeal for boys and quickly spread world-wide. While Scouting’s Purpose, Promise and Law are timeless and universal, Scouting’s flexible programme adapts to meet the needs of youth and their society wherever they live.
There are more than 31 million Scouts, youth and adults, boys and girls, in 216 countries and territories.
