How to join
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers are open to all, and we can usually tweak things to make sure everyone can join in the fun. If you have any questions about accessibility, chat with your leader as soon as possible. By being upfront from the start, parents/carers can work in partnership with leaders to make sure their young person has.
How will my child benefit from joining Scouting?
We give young people the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.
Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week – having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.
How much does it cost?
There’s a basic fee covering the cost of the hire and upkeep of the place where you meet. Trips, camps and activities that take place away from the usual meeting place are usually charged separately.
Scouting is designed to be an affordable way to learn lots of new skills through a single membership. Nobody should feel excluded because of money worries. If they’re concerned about costs, adults should speak to their local leader in confidence, to see what they can do to help. In most cases, support is available to make sure nobody misses out.
Is there a waiting list?
Lots of young people want to our groups, and you might have to wait for a space to become available before you can start your journey. If the group has a waiting list, parents and other adults might want to think about what they could do to help out. Regardless of skillset or availability, there’s an opportunity for everyone to contribute.
If you have any questions regarding the waiting list, please see the Waiting List FAQ.
