Aim of the Scout Association
The Aim of The Scout Association is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, and spiritual potentials, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities. The Method of achieving the Aim is by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law and guided by adult leadership.
The Scout Association has rules covering all activities, from meetings in the Church Hall to adventurous pursuits, in terms of leaders and supervision.
Adventurous activities such as water sports are subject to further safety precautions laid down by the Scout Association, and also by the relevant bodies e.g. Royal Yachting Association, British Canoe Union.
Scout Association regulations are widely acclaimed by many of these professional bodies.
Leaders of camps and pack holidays must hold relevant permits.
Only minibuses with seat belts and forward-facing seats are used by the Group.
If you have any queries regarding the Policy, Organisation and Rules please
ask a Leader.
