Join the Adventure

If you think Scouting's just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It's how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.
There are 450,000 young people in Scouting, spread across five sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network. Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards.

Right here in Falmouth and District (covering Penryn, Budock, Falmouth, Mylor, Flushing, Constantine, Mawnan Smith & Mabe) hundreds of young people are already taking part in "Everyday Adventure". If you fancy trying out some new activities, meeting new friends or perhaps even travelling the world one day, maybe you'd like to join us.

The Scouting Sections



Beavers (6-8)
Beaver Scouts are our youngest members. They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.
They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it's a real adventure for them.


Cubs (8-10.5)
A Cub Scout Pack can have up to 36 Cub Scouts and is split into smaller groups called Sixes. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors.
Camps and holidays are some of the most memorable events of the year for Cubs.


Scouts (10.5-14)
Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, usually led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being camping. Throughout the year, Scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp.
Rock climbing, potholing, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things they get up to.


Explorer Scouts (14-18)
Explorers are encouraged to lead themselves in deciding the programme and direction of the Unit, with support and guidance from leaders. The section also includes the Young Leaders' Scheme, where young people are able to take on a leadership role in one of the younger sections.
There is wider scope for activities like offshore sailing, campaigning, performing, parascending, mountaineering and expeditions.


Scout Network (18-25)
Scout Network is the fifth and final section of the Scouting movement. Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a Scout Network Leader.

Welcome Freshers

Volunteering (18+)
The amazing Scouting adventure is only possible thanks to the 100,000 adult volunteers across the UK who give up their time to help provide youngsters with life changing opportunities.
Whatever your skills there's a role for you, you don't have to spend your weekends in a tent if you don't want to. We need volunteers to help us run groups, to keep admin under control, to provide training and pass on skills to youngsters, to fundraise or to maintain equipment.
Volunteering with the Scout Association is a fantastic opportunity for you to have fun, improve your CV and support your community, there are plenty of ways for you to improve your own skills from activity training to improving your confidence, we believe volunteering is a life changing experience for us too.
