Scout Hikers
Scouts are the 3rd oldest members in the Scouting family aged between 10 ½ and 14 years young, forming a group which is called a Troop. A Troop can be split up into smaller groups called Patrols, each individual Patrol group is led by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader. Also each Patrol group is named after an animal of the Scout Leader’s discretion. Scouts are adequate enough to be able to take part in a much wider range of activities and more opportunities which all contribute to an even larger choice of badges. Scouts regularly go camping because it is highly important that a Scout takes part in and puts in use traditional scouting skills outdoors such as practising survival, cooking or other adventurous activities. Scouting doesn’t just gives you the knowledge of camping in the outdoors but it also teaches you about important life skills such as fire safety, first aid, cooking and many more. Like Beavers and Cubs, Scouts still get many opportunities to visit and participate in outdoor/indoor activities outside within Scouting as a Troop. Scouts learn how to increase their abilities, strengthen friendships, and have fun and honour the Scout Law.

The Scout Uniform

At 1st Ettingshall all Scouts are required to own a Scout shirt and a official Scout belt to be invested and in which they can sew the badges they earn upon. This can be purchased from any outlet that sells official scout uniform. To be invested they also need to purchase a neckerchief which can only be purchased through our scout group. There is also many other optional extras that they can wear such as scout trousers, t-shirts, hats and many more for a full list please look at the scout online shop under the uniform section or the clothing section.

The Scout Badges

As a Scout you will have the opportunity to gain any of the badges available to you from the 3 areas which are the activity badges, challenge badges and staged badges. Some of the badges are to be achieved from the work and activities you do at Scouts whilist others are achievable from what work you do outside of Scouting. For some of the badges available to do outside of Scouting please check the resources page to find downloadable packs containing information on how these badges are achievable and then bring along the evidence to your weekly meeting. If you feel you may have completed any badge in or outside of scouting and it has not been recognised please discuss it with a leader. Listed below are all the badges available to gain as a Scout and where they should be sewn onto on your shirt.
