Scouts at the 1st Sheldon caters for children of 10 yrs up to 14 years old.
This section gives the children a much wider scouting experience, and our programmes are designed to back that up through everyday adventure.
The children are encouraged to develop teamwork skills, in Patrols and they also undertake some simple leadership responsibilities.
The range of activities available to this age group is huge, and includes residential experiences, and other activities to develop independance and life skills
Our leaders are very experienced with yong people of this age group and are able to encourage them to challenge themselves in a very positive way.
The children undertake a programme of structured badgework based upon effort and personal achievement, culminating in a Chief Scouts Gold award, which is usually attained just before moving to Explorer Scouts.
Our aim is to help the children develop as resposible young adults who are ready to enjoy the next stage of their scouting adventure with the Explorer Scouts.
