Young people in this age group are encouraged to lead their own programme, supported by volunteer leaders. Its all about the young people deciding what they would like to do and organising it for themselves. The programme for this age group is based on projects and challenges, encouraging young people to complete one-off challenges and more in-depth projects both of which can be tackled individually or as part of a team.
There are opportunities to go away on camps and residentials, which are often the highlights in the annual programme. Our camps take place on weekends to a whole week and we often stay in the Wyre Forest at The Frank Chapman Centre or Coopers Mill. Also we have been to camp to London, Weston Super Mare, Wales, Scotland and also Germany.
Young people wear a core uniform which can either consist of a blue shirt & tie. Also members usually wear school trousers and footwear as part of the uniform.
