In the Scouts we have a saying: You only get one childhood. Make it count.
That’s why we encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate difference and stand against intolerance today, tomorrow and every day.
We develop the leaders of the future: nearly half a million of them in the UK and 50 million worldwide, taking part in Scouting adventures each week. We teach skills, not just tent pitching, but teamwork, resilience and tenacity – the stuff that makes the difference.
A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too. Scouts have gone on to become presidents and Olympians. They’ve even walked on the moon.
We will bring you special offers, exciting competitions, interesting features and behind-the-scenes stories.
