Jump in and get muddy. Give back and get set. Scouts ignore the butterflies and go for it, and soon so will you.
Being a Scout
When you join Scouts, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things.
Activities and what you’ll get up to
Build and develop your confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills. Explore you beliefs and attitudes and be creative. Gain independence and put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.
Scouts start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It starts with an award. Who knows where it might lead?
As a values based movement we all make the ‘The Promise’ an oath that helps us to be our best
Moving up to Explorers
Eventually, it’ll be time embrace your next big adventure.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
All of our leaders are trained volunteers, working to make sure Scouting is safe, inclusive and accessible. Some lead the Colony week in and week out. Others visit occasionally to help run a session or drop in to share their skills. No matter how much time you have to spare, find out about volunteering on your own terms.
