Skateboarding, climbing, kayaking, camping, sailing, orienteering, cycling, hiking, grass sledging, potholing... Scouting is all these things, and more.

Scouting is about personal development through providing opportunity. It encourages young people of all backgrounds to have self-belief and a voice; to develop physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually. We call this everyday adventure. They just call it fun.

We believe that young people develop most when they are 'learning by doing', when they are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and think for themselves. Why do we believe that? Well, because they told us. Scouting is a youth movement, meaning it is the young people that drive us forward.
