If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised.
There are 450,000 young people in Scouting, spread across five sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network. Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.
Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart.
It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet life long friends.
Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced range of activities, events and experiences, covering a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.
