Scouts are young people aged 10 1/2 to 14 who:

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Make friends
  • Are curious about the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference

Our Scout Troop meets on Fridays 7.30 – 9 at our Headquarters on The Ridgeway, Tonbridge. Register your interest on the Join page.

The programme for the current term can be found here.


There are nine Challenge Awards which Scouts will work towards in their meetings: Adventure Challenge, Creative Challenge, Expedition Challenge, Outdoor Challenge, Skills Challenge, Teamwork Challenge, Team Leader Challenge, World Challenge, and Personal Challenge. Successfully gaining all of the Challenge Awards (together with 6 activity badges) entitles a Scout to the Chief Scout’s Gold Award, the highest award available in Scouts and an achievement to be very proud of!

Activity Badges are aimed at particular interests and activities. Whatever your Scout is interested in, there will be a badge for them to work towards. There are the “classics”: Camper, Hill Walker and Lifesaver for example, but also badges as wide-ranging as Electronics, Media Relations, and Street Sports. Although we work towards some of these in meetings, many can also be completed at home –  we love to hear about all the exciting activities our young people get up to in their own time.

Please follow these links if you would like to see the full requirements for Awards and Activity Badges.


Essential Scout uniform is a teal green shirt or blouse and a Group necker. Trousers, shorts, caps etc are also available but are not usually required. 
Uniform can be purchased from the local scout and guide shop which operates on Saturday mornings 9.30am to 12pm at the Weir View Scout HQ at the back of River Lawn. Prices are usually less than online stores and the profits are invested into local scouting.
