Have Respect, Do What is Right, Be Positive

What do Scouts do

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and caving.
As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, be part of a stage show, or even learn how to fly a plane.
There is something for every young person.
It is a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
