What are Scouts?
The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come in to the Troop at 10½. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section in the Scout Group.
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.
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 both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.
The international aspect gives Scouting a special appeal and many Scouts now travel abroad during their time in the Section. In 2013 Scouts from 1st Ealing North went on the County Expedition to Kandersteg, Switzerland, joining up with 500 Scouts & Guides from all around the world - from Italy and Switzerland, to Australia and South America.Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
Our Scout Troop meets every Friday, during term time, from 19:30 to 21:30 pm. We currently have a number of leaders with a vast range of experience, with family ties spreading across the world.
The troop primarily takes it members from both the Cub Packs and from outside existing members. The Troop enjoys a wide variety of activities at the weekly meetings including games, skill training and badgework. As well as the weekly meetings, the Scout Troop takes part in various camps and District competitions and activities with other Troops in the area.
We like to believe that our Troop is extremely active. During the course of the year we have arranged a number of outings and other activities:
Taken part in the Annual District Swimming Gala,
Taken part in the District Cross Country run
Marched at the St George's Day Parade,
Remembrance Sunday Parade,
Various weekend camps,
Field trips around Montpelier Park, for games and investigations as part of badges.
