Scouts belong to the third section in the Scouting family. They have the chance to try a wide range of activities including hikes, water sports and survival camps.
Scouts is for all young people aged 10 1/2 to 14 years, with the option of joining at 10 years at the discretion of the local Scout Group. Scouts normally meet together once a week in a Scout Troop, and have opportunities to go on weekend trips and camps, with an increasing opportunity for taking on a leadership role in the section.
By regularly taking part in their pack programme, Scouts have the chance to earn activity badges, staged activity badges, challenge awards, leadership stripes and the Chief Scout’s Gold Award.
Around the age of 14 years, Scouts move up to Explorer Scouts to continue their Scouting adventure with other teenagers aged 14 to 18 years. Explorer Scouts can also become Young Leaders to help with running Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
The Assistant District Commissioner for Scouts (ADC Scouts) in St. Helens is Dave Singleton:
