The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years.
We have weekly troop meeting during school term time every Wednesday 7pm until 8:30pm.
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.
Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a number of badges and awards that Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
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. Our patrols are Cobra, Bulldog & Lion.
Bio: Being one of the founding members of Haworth Scouts when it re-opened back in 2000 has meant I've been able to watch it grow and positively impact so many young people in the communty.
Scouting is not about kids 'playing army' or messing around with freinds, it's an afforable, inclusive environment where young people develop new skills and freindships. Some many fond memories are created in Scouting that shape each and every childs future for the better.
Bio: Scouting has really helped my confidence and develop my leadership skills. It's not just the children that learn new skills, being a Scout Leader has opened up a whole varierty of experiences!
Through the support and training of the Scouting Association I have been able to gain qualifications in climbing, bellboating, axethrowing and fencing; thats just naming only a small selection of skills I could develop and share with the Scout troop.
