Scouting offers fun, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.

This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups.

The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts, working for peace and global friendship.

Watch: Southampton scouts sleep on a cliff edge!

To me, scouts is about new experiences, developing skills and growing comfort zones. This half term, 3x 12yr old scouts & I quite literally slept on the side of a cliff – I think that’s a tick in each box. Truly fantastic and surreal experience. Massive thanks to James and his friends who lent us the portaledges, […]
