Description

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years.

Our Scout Section meet weekly during school term time on Wednesday nights at the Harston and Newton Community Primary School hall. We start promptly at 19:30 and finish at 21:00. Activities are also sometimes run at different locations, so please check our programme.

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.
