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. For the Scout who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenge 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 traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team and participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
