About Scouting

Scouting offers fun and friendship, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. We have a positive impact on young people, our 100,000 adult volunteers and the communities in which we live.

Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.

This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the Movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups. The Scout Association is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement of 31 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.


About Scouting in Northern Norwich

Northern Norwich Scout District is geographically one of the smallest Districts in the County but it is one of the largest numerically with a total membership in January 2014 of approximately 1050.

The Scout District comprises 13 Groups and has 5 Explorer Scout Units. There is also the Scout Active Support Unit (SASU). The District covers the area from Reepham in the north to Norwich in the south; and from New Costessey in the west to Spixworth in the east.

The Scout meeting place venues and contact details for the Groups can be found on the Group pages.

Adults in Scouting

All the adults involved in scouting in our District are all volunteers and we value them greatly for what they do. Some choose to become a Leader supporting the delivery of weekly meetings for the young people and helping at camps and other scouting events.

Other people prefer to be members a Group Executive Committee ensuring that the Scout Group has sufficient funds and has a meeting place which is fit for purpose. Other people offer to share specific individual skills with the Beavers, Cubs or Scouts so that our members can gain specific badges.

In other words, whatever skills you have or how ever much of your time you can spare, there is a way for you to get involved in scouting.
