3rd Newbury – Scouts (10-14 year olds)

Scouts are usually aged between about ten and a half and fourteen years old.   The Scout Troop has traditionally been based on the ‘Patrol system’.  This involves small groups of young people working and playing together in a gang; usually led by someone of a similar age, and supported and guided by adults.

Older Scouts are given the chance to take responsibility for their peers when they are asked to be a Patrol Leader.

Participation, rather than meeting set standards is the key to our approach – activity badges recognise achievements in:

  • Developing leadership skills
  • Learning emergency aid
  • Spending nights away
  • Sporting activities
  • Helping others in the community
  • Cooking – at home or at camp
  • Adventurous activities – anything from abseiling to zorbing
  • Mastering survival skills

Most Troops will offer a number of events away from home during the year and very often a camp lasting up to a week

At 3rd Newbury we currently run a single Scout section
