Mission Statement

Skateboarding, climbing, kayaking, camping, sailing, orienteering, cycling, hiking, grass sledging, potholing… Scouting is all these things, and more.

Scouting is about personal development through providing opportunity. It encourages young people of all backgrounds, male and female, to have self-belief and a voice; to develop physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. We call this everyday adventure. They just call it fun.

We believe that young people develop most when they are ‘learning by doing’, when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves. Why do we believe that? Well, because they told us. Scouting is a youth movement, meaning its the young people that drive it forward.

To provide everyday adventure to young people we need adult volunteers. These adults not only benefit from supporting young people, they also gain from developing themselves and learning new skills. All of which they apply to their everyday working lives. There are lots of flexible volunteering opportunities to suit you and your needs, whatever the amount of time you have to give.
