Scouting in general
Scouting provides adventurous activities and personal development opportunities for thousands of young people aged 6-25. Internationally, there are over 28 million young people enjoying the benefits of Scouting across 216 countries. Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual, social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them achieve their full potential. In Scouting, 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.
Think you know Scouting? Think again.
If you still think Scouting is just about boys, tents and woggles, then take a look at the video below – you might just change your mind. With over 200 activities on offer and half a million members (including 60,000 girls) Scouting offers everyday adventure to young people and adult volunteers.
