Eastleigh Scouts

Welcome to your Adventure...



Boys and girls aged 10½ to 14

The Scout Section is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs, and is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years.


Activities

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 Challenge awards and activity badges.


Balanced Programme

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 traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.


International Scouting

Its international aspect gives Scouting a special appeal, and many Scouts now travel abroad during their time in the section. In 2011, 40,000 Scouts from around the world attended the World Jamboree in Sweden, and Scouts regularly participate in international camps and experiences both on home soil and abroad, each of them a unique experience in its own right.


Structure

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.

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

Make a difference to the young people of Eastleigh, Fair Oak, Bishopstoke, Allbrook, Horton Heath and Boyatt Wood.

 

Take on our #Challenge4 in October 2019 and help another five young people take part in scouting.

 

Volunteer for just four weeks and be amazed at the difference you’ll make.

 

Week 1 See what we get up to

Week 2 Start to help out

Week 3 Get a little more involved

Week 4 You’ll know if Scouting is for you.

 

We have a wide range of flexible roles for adults either supporting young people or behind the scenes. Any help is truly amazing and you could be just the person to pass on life skills to a young Beaver, Cub or Scout!

 

Don’t just take our word. Eastleigh’s newest adult volunteer is 26 year old Helen Hutchings, a chartered accountant, who says “Since volunteering in May I have felt very welcome and supported, and I’ve already had some really great adventures each time I’ve taken part”.

 

Interested in taking on the challenge? Register your interest by the 15 September.
