2nd Bulford Scouts

“Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to teach a number of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends.”

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure. Using the programme zones listed we develop the young person into a active member of their local community.

Scouts meet on Fridays, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.

Programme

The word ‘Programme’ in Scouting refers to the range of activities, challenges and experiences that young people experience in Scouting. This programme of activities is planned by the leadership team in partnership with young people. The Programme should be flexible and have room to adapt and accommodate the needs of the individuals in the section.

The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. The Programme should be delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.
