As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life.

We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more.

Each week, we offer Fun and Adventure for boys and girls aged 6 to 14 while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.  We have three sections:-

Beaver Scouts for 6 to 8 year olds

Cub Scouts for 8 to 10 year olds

Scouts for 10 to 14 year olds

If you are over 14 you can join the District Explorer Scout Unit

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

It'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. There’s something for everyone.

The aim of Scouting is to develop young people, to help them reach their potential, and to help them become better citizens within their local, national and international communities.

We do this through a programme of activities and events which train the young people, through active involvement, in teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills.

We aim to ensure that every member enjoys the Everyday Adventure that Scouting has to offer. This could be a 6 year old Beaver Scout taking part in his first night away, a Cub Scout enjoying her first weekend camp in a tent, or a 13 year old Scout reaching the top of his first mountain. Climbing, abseiling, camping, kayaking, canoeing, archery, hiking, expeditions and survival skills are just a small selection of the activities you can do in Scouting.
