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 6-25 year olds 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.
We’re starting a new provision for 4 and 5 year olds called to help young people gain skills for life.
Beavers is for 6 to 8 years and time to make friends, have fun and adventure.
Develop new skills and soar to great heights with Cubs, for 8 to 10 1/2 years.
Scouts is for 10 1/2 to 14 years, with new challenges and new adventures.
At Explorers, for 14 to 18 years, you’ll stand on your own two feet, and make memories.
Create, organise and take part in events and projects with other 18-25 year olds in Network.
Volunteering’s not just about giving back – it goes both ways. It improves your wellbeing, gives you skills for the future, and helps you make new friends (and memories). Whether you want to work with young people directly or help behind the scenes, there’s something for everyone at Scouts.
