Welcome to Scouts!
3rd Bromley Scouts has been running since 1909 making it one of the oldest troops in the country and we are still going strong maintaining Scouting values and practices! Scouts is open to boys and girls aged between 10 1/2 and 14, and we run from 7pm-9pm every Friday night. As Scouts we have a varied and packed programme of developing skills, going on adventurous days out and camping. The troop is also a great way of making new friends and making bonds that will last for a lifetime.
The troop is very dedicated to acknowledging and recognising when Scouts are outstanding or have gone the extra mile and we have been awarded over 20 Jack Petchey Awards for children aged 11-14 and each scout has received between £200-£250 to spend on the troop. Over the years we have gone on some amazing days out including: Trip to London Zoo, nights at Quasar, Madame Tussauds, Curling, Go Ape and so much more.
Scouts work through a balanced programme continually working through their Chief Scout Gold Award by completing a series of challenges and tasks earning their badges. Hopefully they progress to Explorers when they are 14.
We are always looking for new Scouts so if you like a challenge, and want to make new friends and learn new skills, please contact us by using the form on the right.
This week, we had a great time practicing our plate spinning and juggling for our Circus Skills badge. Some of us definitely found it easier than others, but I think we all noticed an improvement from last week, which is what is required for the badge!
We played some fun games which we all enjoyed and we also celebrated Zac’s investment into the group. Zac has been involved in the group as a cub and a beaver, and we are looking forward to working with him in Scouts!
Several of the scouts got promoted up to either Assistant Patrol Leader or Patrol Leader ahead of the new half term. This is quite a responsibility, but the leaders feel sure that we’ve picked the right scouts for the job!
