Clearview Troop Leader: James Whelan, Assistant Leaders: Ben Pope. Meets: Monday 7:30pm - 9:15pm
The Scout Troop is for boys aged 10 1/2 to 14 years of age. Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities with an emphasis on participation. There are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges which can be obtained as Scouts take part in a balanced programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes. Being outdoors is important and traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as a wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting. Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure. Most of all, scouting is about having fun and getting the most out of life, including Opportunities of life, Beliefs and Attitudes, Community, Fit for Life, Creative Expression, and Outdoor Adventure.
Although we are currently opperating a waiting list, if you would like to join please call in on a Monday night at 7:30 and have a chat with one of the leaders.
