Providing Scouts with a programme that is both balanced and exciting is one of the most rewarding challenges for our leaders.
The young people are encouraged to not only take part, but also lead some programme elements. This could be showing a skill as a Beaver or running an entire evening as a Scout.
What we offer to young people is a range of activities, events and experiences built around a number of programme zones. We balance the programme in the same way you’d balance a diet, by simply ensuring that over a given period (a month or a term, for example), there is something from each zone in the programme.
Young people experience Scouting by regularly taking part in quality activities, drawn from each programme zone. Personal achievement can be recognised by earning awards and badges leading to the Chief Scout’s Awards and the Queen’s Scout Award.
