We’ve partnered with Macmillan Children’s Books’ Treehouse series to show you how much fun Scouting is. The laugh-out-loud wacky adventures in the world’s MOST AWESOME treehouse sounds just like a typical night with Cub Scouts to us! If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. Scouts is all about fun, challenge and adventure and you can get involved.

There are 450,000 young people in Scouting, spread across five sections aged 6 – 25 years old: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network. Activities are diverse ranging from kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, digital skills, 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.
For a taster of what to expect at Cubs, download and try our new erupting lemon activity inspired by Andy and Terry’s adventures in the awesome Treehouse books.

Get involved

If your child is interested in joining, or you're keen for them to become involved, take a look at some of the questions we're most frequently asked by parents and carers.

This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee.

If you’d like to find out more about your child joining or volunteering your time, search for your local group or give us a call to find out how you can be a part of the adventure.
