We will be teaching the scouts a number of basic scouting skills such as orienteering, camping skills and basic survival techniques. The troop is split into Patrols (usually with 6 scouts in each) and patrol leaders and assistant patrol leaders will be selected and given leadership training.
The Doncaster Danum District, of which we are a part, organises events and competitions which we try to enter. This includes the incident hike, camping and cooking competition amongst quite a busy programme.
We have a minibus which is used to transport the scouts to events or places such as the Metrodome, Climbing, Skiing or Carting etc. When this is used we will charge £1 per Scout for the trip, or more if we are travelling a long distance (such as a camp somewhere)
We try and organise an Annual camp – usually in the Spring Bank Holiday week at the end of May. Other weekends will be arranged should the scouts wish it.
We try and issue a programme of events every half term. Please keep this handy as it carries useful information about what is planned each Thursday
It is Your Scout group
It should be stressed that if there are any activities that Scouts wish to participate in, we will make every effort to work it into the programme if it is possible.
