Fun, Challenge and Adventure for 7000 Young People and Adult Volunteers in the London Boroughs of Bexley and Bromley

Founded 1907

  • Mission statement

    Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 7000 young people aged 6 - 25 in the London Boroughs of Bexley and Bromley, and 400,000 in the UK. We believe in helping our Members fulfil their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves.

    Through the adventure of Scouting, young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility. We give young people experiences they’ll never forget.

    The sort of adventure Scouting offers is the chance to experience something different and the opportunity to challenge yourself.

    In Scouting, we provide over 200 activities from abseiling to zorbing. But Scouting isn’t just about activities for their own sake. We encourage our young people to feel the buzz of the challenge and then reflect on what that means. Did they have fun? Do they feel more confident? Would they do it again?

    All this is made possible by the efforts of thousands of voluntary adult leaders. With award winning training and one-to-one support, we make sure that each one of our volunteers gets to make the best use of their skills and talents. It’s something different from the norm, and that why a lot of people like it. ’ In fact, it’s what’s made us the largest co-educational youth Movement in the country.
