Being a Scout
When you join Scouts, you’ll be introduced to lots of new activities, people and things.
Badges & awards
Master something you love, or try something shiny and new. Scouts start small but think big, always challenging themselves to do more and be more. It starts with an award. Who knows where it might lead?
Every Scout is unique, but they find common ground in their shared Scout values, and make a promise to stick by them.
Making a promise when you join the Troop is a way of celebrating these values. Every time a new Scout decides to join, they chat through their promise with their leader before saying it out loud in front of their fellow Scouts.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join Scouts. But once you’ve settled in, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them.
All of our leaders are trained volunteers working to make Scouts the best it can be, but we don’t just need swashbuckling adventurers to lead our expeditions. We also need tidy-uppers and tea-makers and great listeners from all walks of life – for as much or as little time as they can spare.
Moving up to Explorers
Eventually, it’ll be time embrace your next big adventure.
