Shelfords and Stapleford Scout Group

The Scout Troop

We have around 30 Scouts (both boys and girls aged 10 to 14) in our Cub Troop, which meets most weeks in term time at the Scout and Guide HQ in Great Shelford.

We are an active Scout Troop who like to be out and about as much as we can, you can often find us out hiking, lighting fires and playing games outside.

About Scouts

Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative.  It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.

Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years.  There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 10, and can move to Explorers between age 13½ and 14½. It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.
