Scouts

What is Scouting?

The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10 and 14 years.

Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. "Participation" rather than meeting set standards is the key approach and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges. 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 both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, hiking, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting and canoeing.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

Claygate has an active Scout Troop

Claygate Scouts are for boys aged between 10-14 and enjoy a wide range of activities and several camps during the year.  They meet on Monday nights.

Explorer Scouts

What is Explorer Scouting?

Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between 14 and 18 years old. They make up the fourth Section of the Scouting family.

Not all Units meet each week, because you will often be out and about at weekends or in the holidays doing activities. There will be times when you will be busy doing other things such as exams, and being an Explorer Scout will have to fit around these.

As an Explorer Scout, you will get the chance to work with other Explorer Scouts in your District, not just your Unit. By doing this, you will get the chance to do many more activities, not just the ones your Unit organises.

Claygate has an active Explorer Scout Troop

Claygate Explorer Scouts are for boys and girls aged between 14-18 and they enjoy a wide range of activities both within Claygate and the district.  They meet on Tuesdays, 8:30 - 10pm.
