Scout are for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. Scouts are the third and final Section in the Scouting Group.

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 recognized 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 many 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, and a wide range of adventurous activities. Scouting is about being with friends, and being part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

The Scout Promise is:

To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people
