Children start at Scouts from year 7 upwards, normally moving up from Cubs soon after starting secondary school, although this timing can be flexible depending on the individual child.
We meet on a Monday night at the Scout HQ in Birch Lane, Mortimer from 7:30pm to 9:30pm. We aim to get outside as much as possible and focus on giving each Scout more responsibility and developing their ability to think for themselves.
The Scouting program complements the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme syllabus.
Outdoor activities, including bush craft, hiking and games are designed to build self reliance and team working skills.
We aim to camp a couple of times of year, both at home and periodically abroad.
