Parents tell us that Scouting gives their children more confidence, responsibility, a broader set of friends, a chance to pursue things they might not get to do otherwise, adventure and an extended family.
Providing your Scouts with a programme that is both balanced and exciting is one of the most rewarding challenges for our leaders. What we offer to young people is a range of activities, events and experiences built around a number of programme zones.
Young people experience Scouting by regularly taking part in quality activities, drawn from each programme zone. Personal achievement can be recognised by earning awards and badges leading to the Chief Scout’s Awards and the Queen’s Scout Award.
There are about 450,000 young people in The UK involved in Scouting.
These are split into our 5 sections depending on age.
Our volunteers are what allow us to operate in Scouting, from our Sectional Assistants helping run meetings, to our Section Leaders and Group Scout Leaders who help run our groups on a weekly basis all the way through to over team in the background keeping thing running smoothly.
