Scouts

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.

The balanced programme of activities encourages Scouts to find out about the world in which they live, know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and develop their creative talents. There are also opportunities to explore their beliefs and attitudes.

Being outdoors is really important and Scouts love to learn new skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.

Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.

To join the adventure, find your nearest group and sign up today!
