Scouts

Scouts are 10½ to 14, they do anything you can imagine from camping in the snow, hiking, climbing, archery, helping the community, astronomy, football (sometimes), air rifle shooting, making and building stuff (like Bear Grylls), take trips away and have a very active time with other troops in the Rea Valley District. The troop also likes to attend international events too with some members visiting Switzerland, France, Italy, Belgium and Sweden. 

Scout section meetings at 74th are weekly (excluding school term holidays) and usually last 2 hours.

Scouts are expected to wear a uniform (Scouts is a uniformed organisation) please see below for details.
