Scouts do so many varied things that the activities are grouped into areas, or Zones, to best get an overview of them and to help the leaders ensure an even and rounded balance.
Scoutcraft and Adventure
This Zone contains all of the activities connected with camping and the great outdoors. This Zone is full of opportunities to learn not just the traditional Scouting skills associated with hiking and camping, but also those needed for adventurous activities such as climbing, caving, canoeing and sailing
This Zone helps Scouts to discover the similarities and differences in lifestyle, cultures and environments, both locally and from around the world. It helps scouts make a difference.
Scouts have always been involved in community projects, and as a troup we are in a position to make a difference in our community and feel the satisfaction and sense of belonging that this brings. Scouts are encouraged to use their local facilities, such as sports centres, swimming pools, schools and community centres. Community Zone projects often run over a period of time.
This Zone provides opportunities for young people to display their creativity through art, music, drama, design, worship (through whatever faith they chose) and leadership. These might include learning to fly a trapeze at a Circus Skills workshop, making a printed circuit board in electronics, painting a landscape or even working on a car, boat, motorbike or plane as a mechanic.
Fit for Life
This Zone focuses on activities to improve fitness, promote personal health and increase awareness of personal safety. It provides young people with the opportunities to participate in a variety of games and to improve their skills in a range of physical pursuits.
