Lord Baden-Powell - Founder
'Life without adventure would be deadly dull'
"The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others".
"A Scout is never taken by surprise; he knows exactly what to do when anything unexpected happens".
"My belief is that we were put into this world of wonders and beauty with a special ability to appreciate them, in some cases to have the fun of taking a hand in developing them, and also in being able to help other people and, through it all, to enjoy life -
That is to be Happy"
What The Scout Association Do
Every year we help over 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available.
It's exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet life long friends.
Chief Scout Bear Grylls says...
'Two things matter in life: following your dreams and looking after your friends. That's what I love about Scouts.'
