The Scout Experience
Be prepared for
Scouting offers an amazing range of adventures that you won’t get anywhere else. From climbing to kayaking, snowboarding to stage performances, or from camping to coding, you’ll be challenged to learn and achieve things you never thought possible.
The international expeditions have been absolutely sensational. Immersing yourself in a new culture and opening your eyes to the world is amazing enough, but to do it with your closest friends is incomparable. I would highly recommend others to take every opportunity that arises in Scouting.
Be prepared to learn
What you’ll learn in Scouts will stay with you forever. Scouting gives young people opportunities to find their independence and develop the social, leadership and team work skills that help build a positive future.
Scouting has made me a confident person – someone who can stand up for what I believe in and someone who wants the world to be a better place. I love Scouting. I would not be where I am today without it.
Be prepared to
Teamwork is at the heart of everything we do, and by facing new experiences as part of a team you’ll make friends for life. Whatever your background, you’ll be made to feel welcome in Scouts and supported to be the very best you can be.
I’ve made a huge number of great friendships through Scouting and have managed to take part in incredible experiences I know I couldn’t get anywhere else.
Be prepared to
The biggest surprise you’ll see in Scouting is within yourself. By taking on new challenges and getting out of your comfort zone you’ll learn more about who you are and what you can achieve. You’ll soon discover that the possibilities are limitless.
With the skills I’ve learned through my time in Scouts I will be able to handle a lot more situations that I couldn’t have before, like being able to go on an overnight hike or expedition without worrying if something goes wrong!
