The Scottish Council The Scouting Association offers a variety of adventourous activities as part of an exciting programme for members:
Land activities are a key part of the 6-25 Programme.
Young people are encouraged to try new activities and develop their current interests through activities ranging from archery to rock climbing.
We believe that by taking part in safe but challenging activities, young people develop new skills and abilities.
Water activities give young people the opportunity to take to the water in a variety of challenging ways.
These range from high adventure water sports such as water skiing and offshore sailing to more traditional activities such as a canal boat expedition.
Sea Scout and Explorer Sea Scout programmes allow young people to undertake water activities as a specialisation whilst following the Movement's 6-25 Programme.
Air activities in Scouting range from high adventure glider flights and parascending to kite making and visits to air fields.
As with Sea Scouts, Air Scouts and Air Explorer Scout programmes allow young people to undertake air activities as a specialisation whilst following the Movement's 6-25 Programme.
Creative activities allow young people to express themselves in different ways. Through dance, music, art and craft young people are invited to develop their talents or try something new.
Creative activities can include circus skills, urban street art, sculpture and photography.
More traditional Scout activities such as Scout Orchestras and Scout Shows remain a popular way for young people to explore their creative talents.
Nights away are always popular with young people. In Scouting we pride ourselves on providing quality nights away events.
From traditional Scout camping to overnight expeditions and hikes, young people are given the opportunity to develop skills and above all have fun!
Adventurous Activity Permit Scheme
The Scout Association has recently launched a Permit Scheme to continue to ensure that all young people benefit from well organised, high quality nights away.
