Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart. It's exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives. We offer hundreds of activities, as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, staged performance, and archery. There’s something for every young person, whatever their physical ability
Badges and awards. Did you know that as well as hiking, healthy eating and camping badges, our Scouts can develop skills in IT, PR and mechanics? Our activity badges allow Scouts to demonstrate their progress in various pursuits, and help them to form new interests. They are usually awarded when a young person has completed a challenging yet achievable set of requirements. We also have a number of Challenge Awards, which focus on more ambitious tasks of our balanced programme.
