Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. The activities and adventures continue to get bigger and we start to give them more independence. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping.
Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camps as well as a wide range of other things, such as electronics, teamwork and important life skills.
We still recognise their efforts through badges and award schemes however there is a bigger emphasis on them to complete their awards themselves.
