About Scouting

Think you know Scouting? Think again.

If you still think Scouting is just about boys, tents and woggles, then take a look at our video – you might just change your mind. With over 200 activities on offer and half a million members (including 60,000 girls). Scouting offers everyday adventure to young people and adult volunteers.

Parents

Parents tell us that Scouting gives their children more confidence, responsibility, a broader set of friends, a chance to pursue hobbies and activities they might not otherwise get to do, adventure and an extended family.

‘Children learn social skills as well as practical ones. They have to remember things to bring the following week so they have to take a bit of responsibility for their own stuff!’

‘When I see Ella at Cubs, doing things for herself and her friends, I’m so impressed. It helps you step back and let them get on with it. ’

‘Scouting helps parents prepare their kids for life.’
