The East Tilbury Scout Troop
Welcome to the webpage of the Scout troop, We hold our meetings on a thursday night between the hours of 19:00 and 20:30 unless otherwse stated. During the meetings the scouts get to take part in a variety of activities, all of which, contribute to their education and help improve skills that they may need later in life.
Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement.
The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½ years old.
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.
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.
