  Scouts to get outdoors in revamp
Updated 27 April 2002, 15.40
The modern Scouts
First it was the Guides and now it's the turn of the Scouts to get a modern revamp.

Not only is the scout logo going to change, but there will be new sections for different ages and more outdoor activities.

Space-hopping

Flintshire in Wales

And over a hundred scouts have been pitching their tents and straightening their woggles in north Wales on Saturday for a weekend of outdoor fun to advertise the changes.

They will be trying their hand at climbing and space-hopper racing, amongst other things!

New age groups

The Scouts is the world's largest organisation for boys and girls with almost 30 million members.

But scout leaders want to modernise what they do to make it more fun and relevant to the skills young people want to learn.

Part of the changes include new sections to replace the Venture Scouts.

The Explorer Scouts will now be for 14 to 18 year olds and the Scout Network will be for those aged 18 to 25.
