Scouting offers fun, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 boys and girls, age 6 – 18 years old, across the UK. Offering over 200 different activities including camping, cooking, outdoor games and crafts, Scouting helps young people grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.
This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.
NB: Due to Covid restrictions, no Face to Face Scouting is currently permitted. Beaver Scouts and Cub Scouts are still functioning via zoom and home activity packs.
