If you are a Cub, or new to Scouting, you can join the Scouts between the ages of 10½ and 14
When you join the Troop, you must complete the Scout Membership Award. However, if you are already a Cub, and have your Cub Scout Moving-on Award, you may done some, or all of this. Once you have done every thing for the Scout Membership Award, you can be invested. If you are a Cub Scout you can transfer the following badges to your new Scout uniform:
- Cub Scout Joining In Badge (highest number)
- Cub Scout Moving-On Award
- Chief Scout's Silver or Bronze Award
- Any Staged Activity Badges (highest number/stage gained)
Joining the Scout Troop
The scouts meet on Monday evenings during term time between 7.15 and 8.45 pm, and normally at the Scout Hut, unless they are taking part in an outdoor activity. When you are invested as a Scout you will receive the Membership Award. Wearing it means that you are part of the worldwide family of Scouts and will be recognised by Scouts from all around the world.
If you don't already have one, you will also be given a group scarf (sometimes called a ‘necker’) to show that you belong to 2nd Wimborne Scout Group.
Your parents and family are invited to come and watch you make your promise, at the investiture ceremony.
