The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½ years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.
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.
If you are interested in joining Scouts as either a Scout or an adult helper, please contact us and the ADC (Assistant District Commissioner) will contact you with the information that you need to know.
We have Scout troops in Sandiacre, Breaston, Draycott & Wilne, Sawley and various areas of Long Eaton such as College Street, Tamworth Road & Trent College. We all usually meet during term time. All Leaders have undergone training and are continually assessed. All Leaders meet about three times a year and we can keep in touch with what his happening in the District.
