The Scout Association offers fun and everyday adventure to 500,000 young people between the ages of 4 and 25 across the United Kingdom.


What do Scouts do?

Scouts is where young people make new friends, have amazing adventures, and learn new skills.

Scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week – having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.

Every week we give almost half a million 4 to 25 year old girls and boys the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.

Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.

Scouting is a Membership organisation so subs are payable and there is usually additional costs for camps and extra adventures. If you’re concerned about the cost, do speak to the leader in confidence; there may be assistance available.

Are you ready to enquire if your young person can join…

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
