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 Scouts are for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years. The 6th Northwood Troop meets on a Friday.
Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing

Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key, and there are a number of badges and awards that Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
Activity badges allow Scouts to show their progress in existing pursuits, but also to try all kinds of new things and form new interests. Whereas challenge badges involve accomplishing a number of more ambitious tasks within the Troop or community.View all badges
