03. How do we Scout?

There are over 1000 young people involved in Scouting in Preston, spread across five age ranges in sections:

Our programme

Our programme describes the diverse and exciting selection of activities and experiences provided in our youth sections for young people aged 6 to 25 years old. It is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills.

The programme should be delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme. The programme is designed to progress through the sections to offer young people an appropriate level of challenge.

We can provide lots of support in planning your section’s programme.  In the first instance your Group Scout Leader and Section leaders will be able to offer guidance. Your District team will offer opportunities to share ideas, take part in District events and provide support for activities within your meetings. Your Wood Badge training will also provide you with lots of ideas, resources and peer support.
