Parents tell us that Scouting gives their children a broader set of friends, adventure, a chance to try new things, more confidence and a sense of responsibility.

“Children learn social skills as well as practical ones. They have to remember things to bring the following week so they have to take some responsibility for their own things”

Scouting helps prepare children for life.

Speaking to your section leader and using the information on these pages can guide you to prepare your child for scouts, helping them embrace the experience.  It will help promote your support for our group, and make you feel part of our Scouting Family.
