The Scouting Adventure continues to grow in Bath

22 April 2016

There are now over 573, 000 Scouts across the UK, according to the Scout association’s annual census, and for the first time, 25% of our young people nationally are female!

Locally, Scouting in Bath reflects this and continues its trend of growth, having grown for nine out of the last ten years, this year with an increase of 3.5% in our female young people against a total growth of 4.2% in our membership.

Cf-nJBlWsAAFJxJThe census also revealed that on average across the UK, 21 new people join Scouting every single day, but that we still do not have enough adult volunteers to allow all the young people who want to join to start their adventures without being placed on a waiting list first. Scouting is open to all regardless of age or background. There is something for everyone, from activities like abseiling, zorbing and creative arts. Adults can join in too with craft activities, walking, and camping, as well as supporting behind the scenes with admin and fundraising.
