Scouts

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement.

From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 450,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting.

An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.

‘Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do.
It’s about having fun with good friends.
I was selected to go the World Scout Jamboree in Japan and that’s going to be awesome.’

The Scout Promise (for Scouts, Explorer Scouts, the Scout Network and adults)

On my honour, I promise that I will do my best to do my duty to God and to The Queen, to help other people and to keep the Scout Law.

The Scout Law
1. A Scout is to be trusted.
2. A Scout is loyal.
3. A Scout is friendly and considerate.
4. A Scout belongs to the world-wide family of Scouts.
5. A Scout has courage in all difficulties.
6. A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property.
7. A Scout has self-respect and respect for others.

The Scout Method
Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:
• enjoy what they are doing and have fun
• take part in activities indoors and outdoors
• learn by doing
• share in spiritual reflection
• take responsibility and make choices
• undertake new and challenging activities
• make and live by their Promise.
