Who are we?

Viking Scout Troop meet every week, throughout term time and run an active and challenging programme, which aims to promote the growth and overall development of the young people that attend. The activities take a step up from those at Cub level, giving members new skills and allowing them to further test their knowledge. Activities in the Winter months include map reading, navigation, planning and cooking a meal for 6 on a budget of £5, mini pioneering, axe and saw safety and even a Halloween party. In the Spring and Summer we like to get out more and often go boating, kayaking, climbing and camping, making practical use of some of the skills learnt indoors over the Winter.

What do we do?

Our weekly programme is based on the Scout Associations progressive balanced programme which is designed to give young people a broad skill set and learn about everything in the World around them. It includes a range of activities, events and experiences built around six programme zones. It also allows young people with different abilities to get fully involved in what we are doing. This is supported by the Scout Activity and Challenge badges, which are awarded when a young person completes a simple set of challenges, to find out about all the badges available to Scouts you can visit this link.

We try to keep as busy as we can making the most of local facilities and events put on by the County or District Scouts. This year we have been bowling, taken part in lazer tag and took part in the annual Camel Run Challenge. We also like to run our own camps throughout the year, no matter what the weather! This includes our annual Summer camp, where we normally head further afield for a full week of adventure, with the Scouts sleeping in tents, cooking all their own food and exploring the great outdoors. During the camp we take part in activities on and off site, play games, have fun and make the most of what the local area has to offer.

We try to offer the Scouts adventure where ever we can and like to challenge them as individuals and as part of a team. The Activities we run give all our Young people the chance to try something different and learn new skills. Some of our more popular activities include, Hiking, Climbing, Kayaking, Boating, Fire lighting, Backwoods cooking, Pioneering, Camping, Archery and Team building. This is just a small selection and there isn't much we can't do and there is even less we won't give a go.

Why join?

Scouting provides the opportunity for young people to Make friends, try new things, learn, explore, make progress, work as part of a team and most importantly have fun.

Young people experience Scouting by regularly taking part in meetings, activities and events, by getting involved in as much as possible they will develop as individuals and members of the Community, while having fun and learning in a safe and secure environment. Personal achievement is recognised by earning awards and badges leading to the Chief Scout’s Gold Award, the highest award a Scout can get.

Who can join?

We welcome any young person between the age of 10½ and 14 to attend on a Friday night and join the adventure. Scouting is an organisation that welcomes all backgrounds and abilities and we will try our best to accommodate any child no matter what their needs.
