The Scout Association offers fun and everyday adventure to 573,000 young people between the ages of 6 and 25 across the United Kingdom.
Scouting is the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation. It offers 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Surrey Scouts is made up of 18 Districts covering the entire County of Surrey. Each District has many Scout Groups made up of Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts. In each District there are Explorers Scouts who will either be run as units for the whole District or they might be associated with an individual Group. There will also be a Scout Network for the older young people.
For Adults, each District has a Scout Active Support Unit who help develop and support Scouting in the area. This section is open to all adults who have a bit of time to help their local community even if they cannot commit to being a leader at a Group.
The County offers a hugely diverse range of activities from archery to zorbing and everything in between; there are very few adventurous activities that Scouts are not allowed to do! We offer a progressive training scheme which helps young people develop themselves and which works in tandem with the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme to produce awards which are recognised by Employers and Colleges.
