About Scouts


10.5 - 14 years old


Welcome to the Scouts Section page


The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come in to the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14 1/2 years old. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section in our 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


Being outdoors is important and half the Programme is given over to taking part in both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.


Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.


Scouts moving on to Explorers


Unforunately we do not have an explorer section at the 109th Scout Group:


However there is a South Belfast Explorer Unit who the scouts have an option to moving on to which means they stay in scouting, while at Explorers a scout can become a young leader and help in any section below scouts, this is particularly good if they are doing Duke of Edinburgh Award as it counts towards the Service element of the Award.


Scout Uniform


Scouting is a uniformed organisation and the uniform tells everyone that you are a Scout.

The Scout uniform consists of:


•Teal green shirt (and optional group polo t-shirt)

•Group scarf


•Dark trousers / pants

•Black shoes or trainers


We do not allow any football, rugby or gaelic tops to be worn.


The Scout Shirt can be purchased at the Scout Shop (Discoveroutdoorsuk), 12-14 College Square East, Belfast BT1 6DD
