1st Holme Valley (Holmfirth) Scout Group – Scouts (10½ and 14 years)
17th February 2022 - 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Scout Association is the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation with over 520,000 members.
Here at Holmfirth, we provide Scouting to young people in and around the Holmfirth area of West Yorkshire. We are a very active group located in the centre of the Last of the Summer Wine country.
We change lives by offering young people fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Internationally, we have over 28 million young people enjoying the benefits of across 216 countries.Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the Scouting individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young people develop most when they are ‘learning by doing,’ when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves.
Mondays – 19:00 to 21:00Thursday Troop
Thursdays – 20:00 to 21:30
Due to our active programme, we often meet outside of these times as well.
The Scout Section is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs, and is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years.
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 Challenge 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.
A Scout Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, and often with an Assistant Patrol Leader.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, and participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
