What do scouts do?

 

Scouts are at the age where they can experience the true adventure that scouting has to offer – from arts and crafts in the meeting place to jumping off cliffs, climbing, sailing, hiking, raft building and many more! We aim to give scouts a wide range of experiences so they can learn some new skills by accident along the way.

 

When you join Scouts:

 

After a few weeks of coming to Scouts you will have to make your Scout promise. At that time you will also get to wear a uniform with different badges and a group scarf. You will see that all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders wear the same scarf. You normally wear your uniform to all meetings unless told otherwise in advance.

 

You do not need to wear uniform when you first come to Scouts. You start by coming along for a few weeks to make sure that you really like our programme and that you wish to make your Promise and be invested into the Scout Troop. You will need to wear your uniform for your investiture and where possible all parents/guardians are invited to this special event. The group scarf is presented to you at the investiture along with the group badges.

The Scout Promise:

 

On My Honour, I promise that I will do my best

To do my duty to God and to the Queen,

To help other people

And to keep the Scout Law

 

The Scout Law:

 

A Scout is to be trusted.

A Scout is loyal.

A Scout is friendly and considerate.

A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.

A Scout has courage in all difficulties.

A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.

A Scout has self-respect and respect for others.

 

The Scout Motto is:

 

Be Prepared

 

(Scouting is a multi-faith organisation and a number of alternate promises exist that may be used instead please click here for the alternative promise.)

 

Who are the leaders?

 

Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers who enjoy running scout meetings activities and camps! All adult leaders have training and an Access NI check, and there is always at least one adult who is first aid qualified in attendance at all events.

 

If you would like the opportunity to do something you’d never thought of doing, while having lots of fun and giving back to the community at the same time, please get in touch – we can always do with more leaders! You don’t have to be an expert in all-things-scouting – the only essential ingredient is wanting to have fun scouting!

 

Scout Leader: Timothy (Skip / Scout Leader) scouts@109thscoutgroup.org.uk

 

Assistants : Gwen ( Akela / Assistant Scout Leader), Richard (Rama / Assistant Cub Scout Leader)
