Young people in Scouting belong to one of five age ranges (or sections) in Scouting. Each of these sections has its own unique identity.
Beaver Scouts 6 - 8 year olds
Values: friendly, fun, colourful
"The best thing we did was swim in the rain. I wasn't even sure we were allowed to, but it was brilliant! I mean we were wet anyway, so I guess it didn't matter too much about the weather."
Cub Scouts 8 - 10 ½ year olds
Values: exciting, cheeky, funny
"The best part of Scouting is definitely the camps. I love every activity we do apart from swimming. They told us the pool was 24 degrees centigrade. Minus 24 more like!"
Scouts 10 ½ - 14 year olds
Values: adventurous, outdoors, active
"It's good to get out basically. I wasn't too keen to go to Scouts to begin with but now it's a good laugh. All the activities we do are fun and I've made loads of great mates."
Explorer Scouts 14 - 18 year olds
Values: challenging, connected, up for it
"To anyone who hasn't tried Scouting before, I'd say come on up and have a go! I think that most people don't really know that Scouting is about activities, friendship and meeting people from other countries. I've been in the Movement since I was a Beaver and I still love it!"
Network 18 - 25 year olds
Values: communication, responsibility, teamwork
"Last week we were out in the Brecon Beacons. This week we're up in the Lakes helping some Scouts take their first trip on the water. Where else can you make a difference and have an excellent time yourself? Scouting - it's recommended."
