Here is Nia (13) story…
I have been a Scout at the 73rd Bourtreehill Group for nearly 8 years now and have worked my way through the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sections.
I have received the top award at each age group and here you can see me pictured with my Chief Scout Gold Award. In June I will move up to the Explorer’s Section where I will start my Module A and Young Leader Training.
For a lot of the time I was the only female in my section. This is starting to change as several girls have joined the group over the past few years, which is great! At times being the only girl could be challenging however, most of the time I didn’t notice a difference. Throughout the years the group has helped me gained confidence in working as a team and to learn new skills that I otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity to do.
I’ve taken part in a lot of activities however have always favoured rock climbing although I also enjoy being out in the water, canoeing, kayaking, sailing and completing burn runs. Over the next few years I will be able to volunteer within the Young Leader Section. I want to encourage other girls to try new activities they would never have had a chance to try. I hope they will enjoy Scouting and the activities as much as I do.
#GMYM and join the Scouts!
