A Scout Troop is for young people aged from about 10½ to 14. Troops are organised into groups called Patrols, each of about 6 to 8 young people led by a Patrol Leader who is one of the Scouts.

Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.

Scouts meet on Thursdays between 7:30pm and 9:30pm at the Scout Hall unless specified otherwise.
