Scouts take things to the next level of adventure and work more independently on a number of challenges and proficiency badges with the ultimate achievement being the Chief Scout's Gold Award.
Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as part of the Balanced Programme. This helps them to find out about the world, understand the importance of keeping fit, and helps develop their creative talents, as well as providing opportunities to explore their own values and attitudes. Being outdoors is important, and 1/2 the programme is all about traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.
