Scouts The Scout Section is for boys and girls aged between 10½ and 14 years. They can join the Scout Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½  years old.

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.

Denmead has 2 Scout troops
Vulcan Troop meet on a Friday night 7:00 – 9:00pm.
Spitfire Troop meet on Tuesday night  6.30 – 8.30pm.


Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and for the Scout who wants to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges awards and activity badges.

Balanced Programme

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 half the programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing.

They play a major part in support of our fundraising events particularly at the Dinosaur Derby.
