Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. This section is open to all boys & girls aged between 10.5 to 14 years old.

All scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities. There are a number of Challenge Awards & Activity Badges to obtain. Scouts is delivered through the balanced programme that helps each individual find out about the world we all live in, it encourages each individual to know their own abilities & helps them understand the importance of fitness, community projects, creativity and team work.

It also provides the opportunities to explore their own personal attitudes & values. Being outdoors is the most important part of the programme & is delivered through traditional Scouting skills from camping, cycling, hiking, tying knots, community work and backwoods cooking. Above all the scout section is about making new friends, having fun, learning new skills here in Newton Mearns as well as through International Events such as summer camps abroad, Jamborrees or JOTA (Jamboree On The Air).

If you would like to come along & give it a go please drop in on a Thursday night at 7-8.30pm. Go on give it a go it may be the best thing you ever did.
