What do scouts do?

Scouts are at the age where they can experience the true adventure that scouting has to offer. In 2014 scouts from 1st Winchester took part in Abseiling, Air Rifle Shooting, Archery, Bouldering, Coasteering, Hiking, Mountain Biking, Mountaineering, Surfing, Pioneering and many other activities.

On camp scouts often cook their own food in patrols. They may go on hikes in small groups without any adults with them provided this is ‘Terrain-Zero’ i.e. not mountainous terrain. (Leaders will never be far away when this happens).

We aim to give scouts a wide range of experiences so they can learn new skills along the way.
