The Scouts are boys and girls aged between 10½ and 14 years.
We have two troops; Burbage Troop meet on Tuesdays at 7:45 pm led by Paul and Stannage Troop meet on Wednesdays at 6:15 pm led by Stuart.
Scouts is the third section in the Scout Group. Scouts take part in a balanced programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.
Being outdoors is important and about half our programmes are given over to taking part in both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to sailing.
