Adventure and Fun!

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do.

It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart.

It's exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet life long friends.

We offer hundreds of activities, as diverse as;

  • kayaking
  • abseiling
  • staged performance
  • archery

There’s something for every young person, whatever their physical ability or interest.

How our activities works

Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced range of activities, events and experiences, based around subject areas we call Programme Zones.

The zones vary depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.

Together we help Scouts get the most out of their Scouting experience by including elements from as many zones as possible within the activities on offer. And, the older they get, the more input young people themselves have in their own activity selection.

Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.

4000 young people aged 6 to 25 enjoy the Scouting adventure every week across Bedfordshire through Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network.

It takes over 1,000 adult volunteers to make this happen as Scout Leaders, Assistants, Helpers, Managers and Administrators, all playing a major part in delivering an amazing adventure week in, week out.
