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).

Joining 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.
