The Purpose of Scouting
Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
The Values of Scouting
As Scouts we are guided by these values:
Integrity – We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy and loyal.
Respect – We have self-respect and respect for others.
Care – We support others and take care of the world in which we live.
Belief – We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes.
Co-operation – We make a positive difference; we co-operate with others and make friends.
The Scout Method
Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:
- enjoy what they are doing and have fun
- take part in activities indoors and outdoors
- learn by doing
- share in spiritual reflection
- take responsibility and make choices
- undertake new and challenging activities
- make and live by their Promise.

It seems that the two systems which manage this information have stopped talking to each other… we are trying to find the cause and fix it.
As the summer approaches I hope we are all tempted to explore outdoors again. Just on the occasional chance you struggle with navigating take a look at this.
Did you know that Scouting UK has released a brand new, refreshed and exciting program building on the existing structure? Take a look here!
There is a new Welcome Back letter available in the download section.
Joining instructions are now on the downloads section.
Drop off at 0830hrs on Sat 26th at the junction indicated in the map.
You then need to hike in a group of no less than two to grid SP 765 148. There’s a full map with grids here you can print. When you arrive make three blasts on the whistle and we will guide you to the camp.
Review the kit list on the consent form, make sure you can carry all your kit on the short hike. Do not drive down the road.
Pick up will be from the drop-off location at 1500hrs on Sunday.
Please remember this is a ‘real’ camp… you will be building your shelter, making your fire, preparing and cooking your food as if you’d caught it.
Scouts will be placing their bridge over a river… let’s hope you made it properly!! Meeting times are as usual (1830-2030hrs) but not at the school…
