There are four main sections in Scouting - divided into age groups - providing structured programmes for young people between the ages of 6 and 18 years.
Whilst the activities they take part in will depend on their age, each Section gives young people the opportunity to learn by doing. Each Section has six Programme Zones. Programme Zones divide the whole programme into manageable areas. Each zone represents a different development area in a young person's life. Leaders are trained to deliver this programme, ensuring our young people stay safe while they enjoy themselves and learn.
BEAVERS is the youngest section for boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 8 years.
CUBS is the second section for young people between the ages of 8 and 10½ years.
SCOUTS is the third section for young people between the ages of 10½ and 14 years.
EXPLORERS is the fourth and final section for young people between the ages of 14 and 18 years.
