Appleton Scout Section

Appleton Scout Section is for boys and girls aged 10 ½ to 14, and meets at Appleton School on alternate Thursdays, from 7.00pm to 8.30pm. 


We spend most of our time outdoors, often in Besselsleigh Woods. Our main focus is on learning outdoor skills such as fire lighting, cooking outdoors, knife work and shelter building. We also arrange a variety of trips and overnight expeditions, both locally and further afield.
