Welcome to the Scouts Wiki page
Scouts is for boys and girls between 11 and 17 years old. Being a Scout teaches you how to be independent, how to take responsibility, how to protect your environment, how to contribute to your community and how to be prepared for success!
Advancement and Badges
The Advancement Programme covers a wide range of activities for Scouts. These activities are completed as you progress up the advancement ladder from Membership through to Springbok, gaining Interest Badges along the way.
