Thank you for your enquiry about joining Scouting!  We have 10 Scout Groups and 4 Explorer Units in Stanmore & District.  Scouting is open to all young people aged 6 to 25 of every faith and background or to adults from 18 upwards .
There are a number of Sections:

  • Beaver Scouts 6-8 year olds
  • Cub Scouts 8-10½ year olds
  • Scouts 10½-14 year olds
  • Explorer Scouts 14-18 year olds
  • Network 18-25 year olds
  • Scout Active Support (18+)
  • Leaders and Occasional Helpers (18+)

Scouts usually meet on one evening during the week, although they may also go to camps and other days out throughout the year.

Whilst the activities they take part in will depend on their age, each Section gives young people the opportunity to learn by doing.

The main programme areas are: Outdoor and Adventure; Global; Community; Fit for Life; Creative; and Beliefs and Attitudes.

Leaders in The Scout Association are trained to deliver this programme, ensuring our young people stay safe while they enjoy themselves and learn.
