Scouts

'Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends.’
Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative.  It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.

Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.

The Scout Troup is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.  The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10 1/2 and 14 years.  There is core flexibility in the age range: young people can join from aged 10, and can move to Explorers between age 13 1/2 and 14 1/2.  It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional leads.  Please speak to a leader if you feel this is necessary - we will always try to accommodate where we can.

Structure

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


Activities

Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as wider spectrum of adventurous activites, from abeiling to zorbing.  Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a number of badges and awards that Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.

Our Scout Leaders:
Scott Guymer         Scout Section Leader
Mari Heap              Assistant Section Leader
Amanda Marcroft    Assistant Section Leader

Cubs Scouts visited the Salvation Army - 02nd February

Cubs had a wonderful time visiting Alison & her team at the Salvation Army as part of their World Challenge Badge.
We learnt about the amazing things the Salvation Army do for people in the community and everybody brought something to donate to the food bank.
What a wonderful evening!



What a load of rubbish!

Cubs & Scouts visit Shanks Recycling Centre - 16th Feb 2017
Cubs & Scouts had the fantastic opportunity to visit Shanks Waste Disposal centre at Bolton-Upon-Dearn to see what happens to all of the rubbish we throw away from Doncaster, Barnsley and Rotherham.
We played a recycling game and learnt how our waste is turned into fuel bricks which are then transported to the energy centre near Castleford.  You have probably seen it - the one just off of the A1M.
