Meeting Times

All scouts should be fallen in on the main deck at 19:15 hrs, therefore the scouts should arrive before this time! We are there from 19:00 hrs so after that time would be great.

The meetings end at 21:15 hrs, then we will let the scouts out from the main deck where they can be collect by you. Please ensure that you are not late when picking up, as this can cause distress to your scout.

Is there a planned programme of activities for Scouts?

Yes. Behind the fun of Scouting, there is an educational programme that was completely redesigned in 2001 following years of work with educationalists and youth workers. While each Group will undertake different activities, the main programme areas are: outdoor and adventure; global; community; fit for life; creative; and beliefs and attitudes. Group Leaders are trained to deliver this programme.

How our programme works

Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences, based around subject areas we call Programme Zones. The zones vary slightly depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world. Together we help Scouts get the most out of their Scouting experience by including elements from as many zones as possible within the activities on offer. And, the older they get, the more input young people themselves have in their own programme.

Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.
