1st Davenham Scout Group

Ages 10½ to 14 years

Meet Monday 7:30 - 9 pm at Bostock Farm

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group. Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. "Participation" rather than meeting set standards is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges.

Scouts take part in a balanced programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes.

A Scout Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, and often with an Assistant Patrol Leader. Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, and participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

At 1st Davenham Scouts we feel that to gain anything from our meetings we must retain some order, we therefore have rules regarding behaviour and dress. To assist our efforts in this matter could all parents ensure firstly that they are in agreement with these rules, and secondly that we have up-to-date contact numbers in case we need to communicate with you at any point.
