When a young person first wishes to join a free trial period is offered for around four weeks. If after that time they would like to become a full member they will then be
invited to become invested. This is where the Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer will say their Promise, and at the same time they will receive a Group Scarf and membership badges for their uniform.
Each section has its own uniform and the uniform will need to be purchased for their investiture. We strongly recommend parents use Wothing District Scout Shop in Durrington as this is an official Scout Shop charging lower prices than
can be bought locally. If you do use Worthing Scout Shop please say you are from the 4th Littlehampton as we receive a finacial donation from purchases made.

Once invested each section works towards earning activity and challenge badges, these badges link through all sections of Scouting becoming harder to earn as children get older. Below are the links to where each of the section
badges should be worn on uniform.
