Build confidence, resilience and a sense of adventure

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 14½ years.

Meetings

We have one Sea Scout troop at 2nd Abingdon.

From September to May they meet at Scout Hut on Wednesday evenings in term-time from 19:30 – 21:00.
