Welcome

Welcome to the 17th St. Albans Scout Troop! Scouts is about fun, challenges and adventure.

Scouting actively engages and supports young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

There are 450,000 young people in Scouting, spread across five sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network. Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards. The five sections accommodate both boys and girls:

  • Beavers (6–8)
  • Cubs (8–10½)
  • Scouts (10½–14)
  • Explorer Scouts (14–18)
  • Scout Network (18–25)
