Scouting

Activities

Each scout section usually meets on one evening during the week, although we also go to camps and take part in other activities at the weekends throughout the year.

Whilst the activities they take part in will depend on their age, each section gives young people the opportunity to learn by doing. The main programme areas are: Outdoor and Adventure; Global; Community; Fit for Life; Creative; and Beliefs and Attitudes.  Scout Leaders are trained to deliver this programme, ensuring our young people stay safe while they enjoy themselves and learn.

Badges

Scouts of all ages work towards attaining awards in their chosen activities, and are awarded Scout Badges. From Fire Lighting and Cooking through to Arts, Crafts and Drama to Imagination and Public Relations, there is a wide range of choice for all sections.

Some of the recent activities include:
Five a Side Football competition
Winter Camping
Climbing at Awesome Walls in Liverpool

A series of camps are planned for this year that include:
I’m a Scout get me out of here
The Great Escape
Our own Group Summer Camp
