Scouts are 10 ½  – 14 year olds

Scouts participate in a balanced adventure filled programme which is split into zones.

Programme Zones split the whole programme into manageable areas.

Each zone represents a different development area in a young person’s life. There are six Programme Zones in the Scout section.

These are:

Beliefs and attitudes

Provides opportunities to explore and develop Scouting values, personal attitudes and a range of beliefs.


Helps Scouts explore the community in which they live, discovering local people, places and facilities. It also allows them to offer help and service.

Fit for life

Activities to improve fitness, promote personal health and increase awareness of personal safety.

Creative expression

Provides opportunities for young people to display their creativity through art, music, drama, design, worship and leadership.


Helps Scouts discover the similarities and differences in lifestyle, cultures and environments, both locally and from round the world.

Outdoor and adventure

All the activities connected with camping, the great outdoors and those needed for adventurous activities such as climbing, caving, canoeing and sailing.

It is recommended that a Troop spend roughly 50% of its programme time working within the Outdoor and Adventure Zone.
