Join the Adventure

Enroll your child into Nottinghamshire Scouts and become part of the adventure!

We Scout – but why should you?

Make New Friends

Going to your Scout meetings is a chance to meet up with your mates, have a laugh and do lots of exciting activities.You’ll meet adventurous people just like you who want to do something a little different.

Learn Exciting Things

Not many people know about the stars at night, how to sail a dinghy or make a sausage stew on a campfire, but you soon will! Scouting helps you learn lots of new and amazing skills – and you get to earn badges and rewards along the way.

Get Outdoors

As a Scout, you get to explore the big outdoors and travel to new places and try new things. Sounds better than being stuck in the house with nothing to do, right?

Have Fun!

Chief Scout Bear Grylls says life is about grabbing opportunities! We agree! Above everything else, Scouting is all about enjoying yourself, whatever you’re doing – and there’ll always be plenty to do!
