Scoutabout 2022 – What a Return!

Date: 5th Jul 2022 Author: Alistair Tickett


After a huge wait, the highly anticipated Scoutabout was back!  With over 6000 young people and adults on site at the South of England Showground in Ardingly, Scouts and Guides from all over Surrey converged for a weekend of fun and activities.  Scoutabout FM kept everyone entertained during the event with Hannah Dorman and Sour Kix taking the stage in the evenings.


The days were filled with activities including the ever popular cave maze, water activities, parascending, abseiling, zip wires as well as lots of smaller activities and crafts.  Scouts and Guides could try their hand at over 100 activities across the site and even off site to access the water-based activities.  It was a complete joy to see the young people in such huge numbers celebrating new #SkillsForLife and just having a really, really great time!


Scoutabout 2022 was an incredible weekend – certainly not one to be forgotten in a hurry!

I want the public to know how Scouting continues to open young people’s eyes to a world of extraordinary promise and possibilities.'
