Our young people


Scouting is for everyone

Scouting encourages young people from all backgrounds, male and female, to have self-belief and a voice. It helps them develop physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. We call this ‘everyday adventure’. They just call it fun.

Our young people take part in hundreds of activities like skateboarding, kayaking, camping, cycling and community projects. But they also get to find out what it means to take a risk, lead a team, make friends and discover that life is as much about possibilities as it is about challenges.

Helping young people develop

The Scouting formula is simple. Using volunteer adult leaders and basic facilities, young people develop trust, integrity and a spirit of adventure. Our Scouts are today’s happiest, healthiest and most productive citizens; some of them will be tomorrow’s leaders.

Get involved

To provide everyday adventure to the UK's young people we need more adult volunteers to add to the 100,000 already taking part.
