Scouts are aged between 10½-14 years old and can join one of our 17 Troops in Horsham who are all supported by incredible leaders and volunteers who help our Scouts ignore the butterflies and go for it.
Being a Scout
Being a Scout is about jumping in and getting muddy. When you join Scouts, you’ll spend 4 years learning valuable Skills For Life and making unforgettable memories while taking part in camps and expeditions away.
Activities and what you’ll get up to
Build and develop your confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills and explore your beliefs and attitudes in the modern world. Gain independence and put these skills into practice at camps and trips away.
Badges & Awards
Master something you love, or try something shiny and new. If it spurs you on or stirs your interest, we’ve probably got a badge for it.
As an inclusive and values based Movement, membership is open to all those individuals who share our fundamental values, and are willing to make a commitment to them, expressed by the Promise and Scout Law.
Uniform and badge placement
You don’t need a uniform to join Scouts. But once you’ve settled in to the troop, you’ll start speedily earning badges, and you’ll need to know where to put them!
Information for parents
Theres lots of information and help available for parents. A great place to start is with your section leader. Give them quick email or catch them at the end of a session, they’ll always be happy to help.
The Scouts website also hosts a whole variety of information which is also a good place to look.
