What does a Scout do ?
Youngsters are encouraged to develop their leadership skills and to take responsibility for themselves and others. They also learn to delegate, help the community, listen to others and make decisions through a vast array of activities, challenges, badges and awards reflecting every conceivable interest and recreation. For instance, the Outdoor Challenge includes pitching and sleeping in a tent in for two nights, cooking on an open fire, playing a wide game, building a pioneering structure and exploring the countryside. The Adventure Challenge includes a choice of hill walking, climbing, orienteering, canoeing, paragliding, caving, cycling and pony trekking activities.
