Scouting across the UK is growing year in year out and is the largest co-educational Youth Movement in the County.
We believe all young people have the right to an adventure. This could be a Beaver Scout spending their first night away from home or an Explorer Scout going on their first international expedition, but adventure is at the heart of what we do.
From abseiling down a cliff to zorbing on a lake and lighting a fire to paddling on the beach – Scouting is all about everyday adventure. Our members participate in some of the most varied activities imaginable; all while having fun and learning how to get the most out of life.
Every section has different activities; meet at different times and in different places. There’s always something different, exciting and new going on. As part of a movement with over 30 million members worldwide the opportunities are almost endless.
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.
Scouting in County Down helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouting develops 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.
