What is Scouting?

Scouts are the senior section within a Scout Group, usually aged between 10 1/2 and 14 years old, although these ages can vary due to special circumstances. A group of Scouts is called a Troop - at 1st Clayton-le-Moors we have one Scout Troop, meeting on Monday evenings, called All Saints Scout Troop

A Scout Troop is divided into small groups of Scouts, called Patrols, with each Patrol named after an animal, and a Patrol Leader and Assistant Patrol Leader in charge of each Patrol.

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.

Scout Promise, Motto and Law

Scouts make a Promise when they join Scouting:

On my Honour,
I promise to do my best,
To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people,
And to keep the Scout Laws.

There are 7 Scout Laws:

1. A Scout is to be trusted.
2. A Scout is loyal.
3. A Scout is friendly and considerate.
4. A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.
5. A Scout has courage in all difficulties.
6. A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.
7. A Scout has self-respect and respect for others.

The Scout Motto is to:

Be prepared.

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.
