The Scout Troop

Scouts (ages 11-17) are guided by the Scout Trail. This adventure trail includes a wide range of activities such as hiking, camping, abseiling, swimming, survival skills, first aid or even flying!

In the Scout Troop, the adult leader is called the Troop Scouter. When girls and boys reach 11 years old, they leave the Cub Pack and go up to the Scout Troop. This is a special occasion called the Going Up Ceremony. If a child has not been a Cub, then he/she may still join the Scouts.

Scouts, Rovers and adult leaders follow the Scout Promise and Law.
