If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.

Every year we help 400,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors, interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

And it's not just young people who can get in on the action. Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available. test

Scouting is about meeting new friends, sharing adventures and making the most of life's opportunities. We make it as easy and safe as possible for young people to push the boundaries of their own experience.

Working with our adult leaders, Scouts can go rock climbing in Rotherham; camping in Coventry, or sailing in Selkirk. With over 200 activities available, Scouting is full of surprises.

But we’re about much more than the outdoors. We deliver a balanced programme of opportunities to our young people, and award-winning training to our adults.
