CONTACTS

The Scout Association philosophy is that every Scout should participate in a Balanced Programme designed to ensure that they experience a quality programme covering a wide range of subjects. In addition to their own programme Explorer Scouts may undertake voluntary work as Young Leaders in the Scout, Cub and Beaver Sections of the 1st Sandstone Scout Group, and are encouraged to work towards the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards and, ultimately, the Queen's Scout Award.

The following trips and other events will be taking place in addition to Wednesday evening sessions.
