About us

The Scout Association is the UK’s largest mixed youth organisation.

We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

20140801_135522Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

Grimsby and Cleethorpes District covers the whole of North East Lincolnshire and also includes Keelby.
We have Groups in Immingham, New Waltham, Laceby, Grimsby, Cleethorpes, and many other locations in between.
We offer fun, challenge and everyday adventure to 600 young people, supported by over 200 adult volunteers. Boys and girls aged 6-25 take part in a balanced programme of weekly activities, as well as trips, camps, visits and other adventures.

What do Scouts do?

keelby-camp-4Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.

What do volunteers do?

This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.

Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
