Scouts is the third section in the Scout Group and caters for boys and girls between 10 ½ and 14 years of age.  Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme.  The range of activities is far greater, and usually more physical, than anything Beavers and Cubs do. Activities can include rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing, survival camps and caving to name but a few.  “Participation” rather than meeting set standards is the key approach.  For Scouts who want to be recognised for his or her achievements, there are a number of Challenge Awards and Activity Badges

Scouts take part in a balanced programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents. It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes
Being outdoors is important and half the programme is given over to taking part in both the traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities mentioned above.

At 79th Reading we have two Scout Troops,  Centurion meets on a Thursday between 7.00 pm and 9.00 pm and Chieftain meets on a Friday between 7.30 pm and 9.30 pm.
