We run a varied and active programme, check out the pictures of the Warriors canoeing, doing archery, building towers and generally getting excited!
We meet on a Monday evening at 1st Chase Terrace Scout Headquarters. During our evening meetings we offer a programme for everyone. We cover all aspects of the Scout programme, including being creative, fitness, outdoors and personal skills. Our young people have a say in choosing what they want to do and then we do it! We've been canoeing, bowling, learned first-aid and fire lighting, cooked and been creative - all part of an average night at the Warriors!
The Young Leader scheme is delivered as part of the Explorer programme. Young Leaders are aged between 14 and 18 and work alongside adult leaders in a Beaver Scout Colony, Cub Scout Pack or Scout Troop. They can be former Scouts, who have turned 14 and have been invested as Explorer Scouts or from external programmes such as the Duke of Edinburgh's Award or members of other organisations such as Girl Guiding UK.
The Young Leader's Scheme is an on-going programme of training designed to support the personal development of young people who wish to help with the younger sections of the movement. There are 11 modules in the Scheme and 4 missions. They are designed to be flexible and encourage innovation and allow for creative thinking. This is one of the top awards an Explorer Scout can gain and when completed the 'Young Leaders Belt Buckle' is awarded.
Check out the Young Leader video on Youtube.
The DofE scheme is also delivered as part of our Explorer programme. "The DofE gives all young people aged 14-24 the chance to develop skills for life and work, fulfil their potential and have a brighter future". DofE is a voluntary, non-competitive programme of activities for anyone aged 14-24. Doing DofE gives young people the opportunity to experience new activities and develop existing skills.
There are three progressive levels of programmes which, when successfully completed, lead to a bronze, silver or gold award. Warriors create their own programme through volunteering, physical and skillfull activities, going on expeditions and, for their gold only, taking part in a residential activity.
The DofE is delivered through a number of licensed providers, The Scout Association being one of the largest in the country.
The Chief Scout's Platinum, Diamond and Queen's Scout awards are special awards. They are the highest awards a Scout can achieve. Each award takes dedication, commitment and the will to go the extra mile.
