Each scout troop consists of a small unit of six to eight scouts called a patrol, usually led by a patrol leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently in the scout troop, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some things they get up to.

All admissions to the group are managed by our 'Joining-in Secretary' who liaises with the section leaders to investigate whether there are vacancies; if there is a place our Joining-in Secretary will make you an offer to join the relevant section (Beavers, Cubs or Scouts). Unfortunately with scouting being such a popular activity with the young people we are not always able to offer a place in the group - if this is the case your name will be put on the joining-in list and we will offer you a place in the group when one becomes available. For further information please go to our joining-in page.
