Scouts are the oldest section in any UK Scout group and are for those aged 10½ to 14.  Here at Ashby Hastings we strive to provide as much adventure as possible, developing those all important #SkillsForLife.

Our Scouts enjoy a widely varying programme of weekly meetings and have the opportunity to take part in a number of weekend events, such as caving, sailing, district and county camps and their Expedition Challenge hike.  Our leaders give up a week of their summer each year to take the troop away on camp.  Sometimes it’s a “back to basics" theme, sometimes it’s at a UK-based international such as Charnwood or Peak – but whatever we do, it’s always great fun.

Most of our Scouts achieve their Chief Scout Gold Award before many move on to Explorer Scouts.
