What we do

Every year we help over 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available.

Bear says...

'Two things matter in life: following your dreams and looking after your friends. That's what I love about Scouts.'
