Scouts are between 10½ and 14 years old. Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. 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 camp.
Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.
In Christchurch district we have scout troops at Town, Jumpers, Somerford, Mudeford, Highcliffe, Burton, Bransgore and Hurn. Mudeford is a sea scout troop and Hurn is an air scout troop. They are supported by Simon, our ADC Scouts.
