Beavers take part in a wide range of activities. These include making things, singing, playing games, going on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories etc. They do this through taking part in a programme of activities provided by the leadership team. They have the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout Sleepover with their friends.
A team of adults will run the Cub Scout Pack, usually led by an Akela, some will be uniformed leaders others maybe sectional assistants, helpers or parents. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities that are designed to be interesting and to challenge them. At the same time, they have fun, adventure and make friends along the way. They do this through taking part in a programme of activities provided by the Leadership team such as camping, playing games, trying new things and exploring the outdoors.
The Patrol Leaders work with the Leadership Team in setting the programme and in decisions affecting the Troop. The Patrol system is one of the important ways that young people can take responsibility for themselves and others. Scouts also have the opportunity to gain a wide range of activity badges by working inside and outside troop meetings. Most of the badges and awards in Scouts require independent work by the Scouts themselves. Most Troops will offer a number of events away from home during the year, and very often a summer camp. These are important to the life of the Troop, as they are the culmination of much of the training during the year.
