Scouts Around Berkshire
Scouting is a world-wide educational Movement for young people. It contributes to the fulfilment of their potential using a progressive and enjoyable values-based programme for personal development.
In Berkshire there are 10,208 (January 2013 annual census) young people and adults enjoying a wide range of Scouting activities. Scouting is mainly provided through over 130 local Scout Groups and District-based Explorer Scout Units. These Scout Groups and Units are organised through 11 Scout Districts, with links to each on the left hand side.
Incorporated as a charity by Royal Charter in 1912, The Scout Association seeks to provide young people with opportunities to participate in adventurous outdoor activities, learn team-building skills and develop new friendships. It is firmly committed to co-education so that boys and girls can develop together and meet the aims of Scouting through one programme.
Membership is open to all young people and adults, regardless of ability, who are prepared to accept Scouting’s fundamental principles. Today, there are over half a million adults and young people enjoying the fun and friendship of Scouting in the United Kingdom and over 30 million throughout the world.
The aim of the Association is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
The Method of achieving the Aim of the Association is by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law, and guided by adult leadership.
