About Us

 

What are Scouts?…
The Scout Section is for young people, aged between 10 and 14 years. The Scout Troop is the third and final Section at the 1st Marldon  Scout 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 recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges.

We have a balanced programme that helps Scouts  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. We  also provide 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, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to fencing

The international aspect gives Scouting a special appeal and many older Scouts can travel abroad during their time in the Section.

What does it mean to be a Scout?…
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

The Scout Promise is:

On My Honour, I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen,
To help other people
And to keep the Scout Law

 

The Scout Law is :

1. A Scout is to be trusted.
2. A Scout is loyal.
3. A Scout is friendly and considerate.
4. A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.
5. A Scout has courage in all difficulties.
6. A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.
7. A Scout has self-respect and respect for others.

 

The Scout Motto is:

Be Prepared
