We believe that every child has the right to an adventure – which is why we try to ensure that every child that wishes to join scouting is never turned away.
Scouting gives a child a great start in life and Teignbridge District have made it their mission to invest heavily in equipment and training to ensure our leaders can make the adventure come alive.
Scouting offers fun, challenge and everyday adventure to nearly 500,000 girls and boys across the UK. Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.
This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups.
The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts, working for peace and global friendship.
