1st North Leigh Scouts Endeavour Scout Troop are the third Section in Scouting after Cubs. The age range for Scouts is ten and a half years through to fourteen years old. We meet every Thursday within the Terms Times of West Oxfordshire Schools at the North Leigh School Hall or in our amazing private woodland in the village.
We are a growing Troop, currently with 38 Scouts in our Troop and more joining us soon. We have an even mix of boys and girls in our Troop and we all get along really well. We are proud of our ethos and promise to true original scouting. If we can get outside and practice core scouting skills like camping, open fire cooking, fire making, pioneering, orienteering and having loads of fun; normally that is where you will find us!
What we get up to!
We aim to have lots of fun whilst learning core skills within Scouting such as fire-lighting, tent pitching, first-aid, knot tying, map reading and orienteering, hiking and outside cooking on real fires. In North Leigh we are fortunate enough to have excellent community links that afford us access to private woodlands along with amazing open countryside on our doorstep.
We go camping lots and lots, no matter what the time of year is! In fact, we love camping and being outside. Whatever the weather, dark or light, you will find us having fun outside and this usually includes camping or a camp fire.
We go to CPCW every year (County Patrol Camping Weekend). We have won this for the last two years beating other Patrols from around the County in this competition to be the best. Beating anywhere up to sixty other Patrols, we currently hold the crown for the best Patrol in Oxfordshire and are looking to secure our hat-trick in 2017.
