Basics

The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½  years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.

Scouts in the Barton St David Scout Group meet on Tuesday evenings at 1930-2100 in Barton St David Village Hall.

Structure

A Scout Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, and often with an Assistant Patrol Leader.  

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, and participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.


Activities and badges

Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme.

Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenge awards and activity badges.


Uniform

Scouts wear a teal green shirt or blouse, navy blue activity trousers or skirt, a group scarf with a woggle, and a Scout belt.
