East Scarsdale Scouts


Welcome to the Scout area of our District website. We have 6 Troops of Scouts within East Scarsdale and a very active programme throughout the year.

Their development is focused on a wide range of activities that encourage and nurture life skills like planning, communication, teamwork safety awareness.  A Scout can expect to learn about first aid and survival exercises while camping. They are challenged across a diverse range of skills, from cycling to camping competitions and other group based team events.

Scouts is for 10½ to 14 year olds who like being challenged and want to better themselves. Scouts usually meet once a week as a “Troop”. The Troop is run by trained, voluntary leaders and helpers.

How do I join?

Perhaps you know a friend who is a Scout…ask them if you can come along to a Troop meeting and see what all the fuss is about. Take a look at the groups page to find the nearest Troop to where you live. You can complete a join form or contact us, who will give you any details you may wish to know.

Most groups will be glad to let you stay for a night or two to see what it is like. You will need to bring your parent/guardian along so that a few forms can be filled in. If you enjoy Scouting (and many people do!) you can find out how to become a full member from the leaders at your chosen group.
