Our Values

Policy Statement

We are proud to live by our values of integrity, respect, care, belief and cooperation. Copmanthorpe Scout Group promotes the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as individuals, responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

This is achieved by providing enjoyable and attractive schemes of progressive training and structured activities based around the principles of the Scout Promise and Law, and guided by voluntary adult leadership.

Opportunity exists for “learning by doing” in small teams, channelled discovery and acceptance of responsibility, development of character and acquisition of confidence, competence, self-reliance, dependability, volunteering and capability to co-operate and lead.

There are no barriers of sex, race, colour, creed, religion, ethnic origin, nationality or disability.

The equality of opportunity evolves by development of people’s individuality to standards which promote “personal best” by means of collective and self-achievement in adventurous programmes.
