The Bradbourne Scout Troop is run by a team of six leaders all of whom bring different skills to the team.
We are a very active section that meets throughout the year. We meet most Thursdays over the school holidays as well.
The troop runs traditional Scouting activities as well as moving with the times and working with up-to-date technology which came in useful during the Covid pandemic.
The troop enjoys a mix of activities and loves nothing more than being out and about camping when we can. We try to hold at least three camps a year. We run a weekend camp in May and then a week-long summer camp at the end of July and finally and weekend camp in October.
The summer camps are normally greenfield which means we find a lovely area and a farm field to camp in. Some of our favourite spots are Corfe Castle in Dorset and Selham in West Sussex.
Every four years we attend the Kent International Jamboree where the scouts can meet up with Scouts from around the world and get a flavour of the international dimension of Scouting.
During our weekly meetings we have a mix of activities guided by what the Scouts want to do so that they can work towards their top awards and developing skills for life.
Activities include: pioneering, hikes, water activities, cooking, map and compass work, geocaching and many more.
