City of Coventry Scout County

Looking after Scouting in Coventry - Phone: 0845 643 1048

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.

The Scout Association partners with NCS
22/07/2017 By Andy Morris

The Scout Association and the National Citizen Service announce a new three-year partnership to support more young people across England. The Scout Association has embarked on a pilot partnership with the National Citizen Service (NCS). We will be working in partnership to achieve our shared goal to help young people prepare for the future and develop crucial skills for life. This partnership aspires to co-design and pilot ideas through NCS's new Innovation Programme on a trial basis for a three-year period, enabling even more young people to realise, and achieve, their potential.
