Scouts is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years who want to make friends and develop their widening interests in way that is both educational and fun.

Young people who want a break from the usual after school routine of homework, games and watching television. Our activities are about action and involvement and that means more than just camping.

Hiking, rock climbing, gliding, sailing, pioneering, canoeing, parascending, abseiling, putting on shows and exhibitions, motor mechanics, electronics, photography - the list is endless!

Scouts are also given the chance to learn skills in survival, cooking and first aid. There are often opportunities to go abroad as well.

Drama Activities

A collection of drama activities to build Citizenship skills within Scouts and Explorer Scouts

These two resources, one tailored towards Scouts and the other towards Explorers, are designed to be easy to pick up and use by Leaders and require no previous experience of drama techniques.  Each activity has its own specific purpose and review questions. The resource is aligned with the Awards Scheme, so you can pick and choose from the activities to compliment your Balanced Programme or use the resource more significantly to gain badges. Dip in and out or fill entire evening sessions, the resource is full of engaging and thought provoking games and exercises spread across 5 areas: Cooperation, Trust, Peace, Diversity and Citizenship.
