At 3rd Alton we are proud to say that we have a very active Scout section of boys and girls from 10.5 to 14 years old.  As the Group is growing, we opened a second Troop in January 2022. The Scouts take part in a wide range of activities from hiking, canoeing and much more. They also spend time collecting badges, learning practical skills such as cooking on open fires, as well as making lots of new friends.

Scouts are organised into patrols and have their own patrol identity in the form of a wild animal, which they also wear on their uniform as a patrol badge. Each patrol is coordinated by an older Scout who is called a Patrol Leader, and supported by their Assistant Patrol Leader. Scouts have the opportunity to earn their Chief Scouts Gold Award during their time in the Troop. Our Troops meet on Thursdays (Endeavour) or Fridays (Enterprise) from 7pm till 9pm at our Scout Hut - The Den - next to the community hospital in Alton.

If you are interested in joining the Troop, or fancy popping down to see what the fuss is all about, please drop us an email and we can arrange a date - click here to register your interest
