Become a Scout

Try over 200 activities – from archery to zorbing. Being a Scout gives you the chance to get stuck into loads of activities you wouldn’t normally get to do.

Parents tell us their children benefit hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience. It can help develop your child’s social skills and independence, and give them access to some amazing and memorable opportunities.

Send us an enquiry about joining using the form below. If you add in your preferred Group your enquiry will be sent there first but if they cannot offer an immediate start we will pass your enquiry to the next nearest Group with places available.

You can find out about section meeting times and days for our local Groups and Explorer Units using the menu on the right.
We encourage all parents to get involved when their child joins to help inspire our young people and add to the adventure.


I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.'
