Scouting is based on a programme of lively, challenging and interesting activities. There is a lot of emphasis on outdoor life such as camping and hiking and learning the skills that go with them. 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.

The Troop is divided into Patrols of between 4-6 scouts, each of these is led by a Patrol Leader (PL) and Assistant Patrol Leader (APL).
