Scouts

Boys & Girls Age 10½ to 14

Here at 1PSC we run two Scout nights offer a full and varied scout programme and offer local young people the chance to move beyond their normal boundaries of perhaps the xbox and TV.

Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities (some extra offsite activities and camps cost) as part of the scout programme. “Participation” rather than meeting set standards is the key approach. Scouts who want to be recognised for his or her achievements there are a number of Challenges Awards and Activity Badges they can take. 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 towards themselves and others

Being outdoors is important and half the Programme is given over to taking part in both the traditional Scout skills, such as camping, survival camps, cooking on open fires, as well as the wide range of adventurous activities such as archery, abseiling, climbing, caving, hiking & kayaking.

We aim to run at least three camps per year such as Patrol camp, Group or District Camp, Winter camp and often do other themed camps such as a hiking camp or sports camp. 

Scouting is about being with friends, working as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life that we offer all our bys and girls here at 1PSC.

 Here at 1st Pontefract Scouts (1PSC) you have the choice of two exciting nights to choose from.

Baden Scouts on Tuesday @ 19:30 to 21:00

Powell Scouts on Wednesday @ 19:30 to 21:00
