The Scout section teaches Scouts teamwork, respect, friendship, and tolerance through its Patrol system. The Scouts are split into small groups called Patrols, each with a Patrol Leader.
Many activities are based on outdoor pursuits and challenges, often with team challenges; again the Scout section has 3 types of badges:
Progressive awards – Blue diamonds on front of shirt
Proficiency awards – Green circles on sleeve
Staged awards – Blue circles on sleeve
The highest award a Scout can earn is the Chief Scout Gold Award.
At 14 years old Scouts will be looking forward to Explorer Scouts and we encourage the link between Explorer units and our Scout Troop.
