A Balanced Programme and Activities

Programme

We provide a balanced programme that contains a great deal of flexibility and is designed primarily for participation and youth involvement. It can therefore be an enjoyable and rewarding experience for any young person, whatever their ability. 

Activity Badges

Many of the badges available are activity badges, which  allow Explorers to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also  to try all kinds of new things and form new interests.

D of E Award Scheme

We offer The Duke of Edinburgh's Award, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Doing their DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities or develop existing skills.

#youshape - 2019

#YouShape Month is a platform to empower young people to shape their Scouting experience at a local and national level. During #YouShape Month, we will run local activities that will help  young people engage on a national level. 

Youth Shaped Scouting isn't a new concept; empowering young people to decide, design and implement their own Programme and experiences is already happening around the country. #YouShape month allows us to ensure that this continues and is embedded in every level of the Movement.
