Fun and adventure for boys and girls 10½ to 14
Scouts are boys and girls aged 10½ to 14 who meet together to do lots of games, badges and activities, indoors and outdoors.
To find out more about Scouts see: Scouts (Scotland).
For information about the programme for Scouts, see the Scouts UK page: Scouts.
If you are a Cub and 10½ to 11, your Cub leaders should be able to arrange for you to move on to Scouts. Otherwise, to find a Scout troop near you, use our “Join Scouting!” link.
Parents and Carers
We encourage all parents and carers to take an active interest in what is going on with all sections, including Explorers. If you would like to help see our information for adult volunteers.
