During their time in the Troop, Scouts will get a chance to try a wide range of different activities as well as going on trips, days out, and on camps. Participation and personal development, rather than meeting set standards, is the key approach, and there are a range of badges and challenge awards that Scouts can gain to recognise their achievements.
The scouts take part in many activities that work towards badges – when they are awarded one, please sew it onto the uniform in the position outlined below.
More information about scout badges can be found on the scouts.org.uk website.
Uniform for all invested scouts will consist of the following:
Green scout shirt, group neck scarf and woggle (presented on investiture in to the group), collarless T-shirt worn under shirt (not school polo shirt), school trousers or navy blue activity trousers/shorts/skirt, grey or dark socks and clean and polished black shoes. For new scouts who are not invested, school uniform or cub uniform should be worn. Jeans and trainers are not acceptable and should not be worn with your uniform.
All uniform can be purchased from the scout and guide shop in Lancaster see www.lonsdalescouts.org.uk for details.
