Join The Adventure

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart.

20140728_111501It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet lifelong friends.

We offer hundreds of activities, including:

  • Kayaking
  • Abseiling
  • Staged performance
  • Paragliding
  • Archery

There’s something for every young person, whatever their physical ability.

How our activities work

Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced range of activities, events and experiences, based around subject areas we call Programme Zones.
The zones vary depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.

46Together we help Scouts get the most out of their Scouting experience by including elements from as many zones as possible within the activities on offer. And, the older they get, the more input young people themselves have in their own activity selection.
Hiking in the dark. Travelling across Poland with just a backpack and three friends. Spending the first night away from home.
Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.
