Being a Scout

Scouts are a go-getting group of young people aged 10 ½ to 14 who: master new skills, try new things, make new friends, have fun, and go on adventures, at home and abroad, Explore the world around them and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond.
Week in and week out, they gather in groups called Scout Troops to conquer the small task of changing the world.

Activities and what you’ll get up to

Build and develop your confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills. Explore your beliefs and attitudes and be creative. Gain independence and put these skills into practice at camps.

Badges and Awards

Master something you love or try something shiny and new. If it spurs you on or stirs your interest, we’ve probably got a badge for it.

If you are wondering where these all go on the uniform then click on the image to see the positions for the different types of badges. Some of these badges are carried over from Cubs, and will continue to be on the uniform when moving on to Explorers.

More information about the badges available can be found on the Scout Website.
