Scouting is the largest youth movement in the world and both Waterford City and the De La Salle Scout Group have a long tradition in Scouting. It is a tradition which has adapted to and embraced the needs and demands of young people today. The Scout section caters for young people of ages 12, 13, 14 and 15, offering a unique blend of activities and experiences with a special emphasis on adventure and the outdoors.
The Scout Method is in learning through doing and we believe that participation in Scouting is a worthwhile and enjoyable outlet for all young people. The Group also holds that Scouting should be accessible to young people of all backgrounds and from all parts of the community. Our two Scout Troops have a strong leadership team which is led by Paschal Guilfoyle in the 3rd and Robert Windle in the 7th. As revealed in our blogs, an active and varied programme is continuously maintained.
