What is Scouting try to do?

The aim of The Scout Association is to encourage the physical, mental and spiritual development of young people so that they may take a more constructive place in society.

Scouting tries to achieve the Aim of the Movement by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based upon a Scout Promise and Law.  Adult Leadership guides the activities and training offered by Scouting.

All sections in The Scout Association are open to both males and females.  Our group is termed as a closed group.  This means our membership is restricted to pupils or former pupils of George Heriot’s ’s School, which is this Scout Group’s sponsoring authority.

The Scout Association in the United Kingdom is a multi-cultural, multi-faith organisation consisting of 5 sections:

The Beaver Scout Section
Beavers Scouts are youngsters aged between 6 and 8 years old.

A Beaver Scout can transfer to the Cub Scout Pack when they are 7½ years old.

The Cub Scout Section

A boy or girl can join the Pack after they reach 7½ years old
Cub Scouts can stay in the Pack until their 11th birthday.

The Scout Section

Locally you will generally find one of more of the sections above forming a Scout Group.  Currently, our Scout Group comprises of only a Cub Scout Pack.

The Explorer Scout Section
