The Peterborough District covers the City of Peterborough, including some of the surrounding towns and villages.

We have 13 Scout Groups, 5 Explorer Scout Units, 1 Young Leader Unit and 1 Network Unit in multiple locations across Peterborough providing an everyday adventure from the age of 4 to 25 years old.

Around 600 youth members meet weekly in the district, taking take part in a wide range of activities. These young people are supported by an enthusiastic team of around 270 leaders and supporters who work together to ensure Scouting is both challenging and fun for the young people and adults alike.
