Scouts (10.5-14)

Scouts are young people (both boys and girls) aged between 10.5 and 14 years old.

Although most of our Scouts join us from Cubs, we are also able to take new members throughout the Scout age range (subject to availability of spaces). At 14 years old, Scouts move up to the Explorer Scout Section, in Portishead this is Kilkenny and fall under Gordano District Scouts.

Our Scouts take part in a huge range of activities, from Abseiling to Zorbing, crafts to climbing. The Scouts are encouraged to have a say in designing their own programme, and can earn a variety of challenge and activity badges.

These awards cover many hobbies including drama, music, IT, martial arts, sports and craft.

A key part of the Scouting Programme is outdoor adventure, and Scouts learn a huge range of skills including camping, cooking, bushcraft and teamwork. Our Scouts also take part in an active programme of camps and residential trips.

If you ever wanted to try something new Scouting is for you!
