Who we are

Runnymede logoWe are a Scout District operating in the County of Surrey, and are part of The Scout Association, the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation.

We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

There are over 500,000 Scouts in the UK alone!

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.

We provide a full active programme of activities, find out more by viewing our District Diary. You can also find out about the exciting things we’ve been up to in the past by reading our District newsletter.

We also provide support, training and programme ideas to the adults who get involved in Scouting.
