Being a Scout
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, and participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life. 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.
Beliefs, Attitudes and Behaviour
When Scouts are invested they undertake to abide by the Scout Promise, which they are expected to know.
Our meetings are held on a Tuesday from 7 to 9 pm at the Scout Hut; we may also meet away from the hut for off-site activities, and alternative venues or timings are advised on the term programme, at the preceding meeting and via email where necessary.
West Wellow Scout Troop is divided into smaller groups called Patrols. Each Patrol has a Patrol Leader and Assistant Patrol Leader who help organise and run the Troop.
Scouts are given the opportunity to take on these roles as they progress through their Scouting journey and gain the knowledge and skills to become Leaders.
Uniform and Badges
All our Leaders and regular helpers give up a great deal of their time freely to make Scouts a rewarding and diverse experience for all the Scouts.
In order to assist our team all parents are asked to come to at least one meeting per term to help with the planned activity. This is detailed on the programme issued prior to commencement of the term. With so many Scouts parent help is essential to the successful running of the pack. Don’t worry, this really is very easy and good fun, mostly!
We ask that if any parent cannot come on their allotted evening that they arrange to swap with another parent to ensure the evening is covered.
