17th Torbay B-P Scouts provide the adventure of Scouting, where young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility; Scouting gives young people experiences they’ll never forget. The sort of adventure we offer is the chance to try something different and the opportunity to face challenges.
We offer young people an exciting range of activities in an informal non-academic environment that compliments their schoolwork. Scouting helps children and young adults reach their full potential and develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment and we want as many young people to benefit as possible!
Our Scout Group has a Beaver Scout Colony (for boys and girls 5-8 years), a Wolf Cub Pack (for boys and girls aged 8-10 years), a Scout Troop (for boys and girls aged 10-15 years) and a Senior Scout Troop (for young adults aged 15-18).
We meet on Fridays 5pm to 6pm for Beavers, 6pm to 7:30pm for Wolf Cubs and 7pm to 9pm for Scouts and Senior Scouts at Palace Avenue Methodist Church, Tower Road, Paignton.
