An Introduction to Scouting

The Scout Association offers everyday adventure and activity to half a million young people across the UK. The Movement is the largest co-educational youth organisation in the world, with over 32 million members in 216 countries and territories.

In the UK Scouting is organised through The Scout Association and has a clear purpose:

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

We believe that 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; and
  • make and live by their Promise.
