Chingford Scout Groups
All Scouting is led by trained volunteers who use their own time to run and organize all activities. As such, all Groups tend to have their own unique ‘personality’ and preference for some activities over others. The choice of Group is up to you although location, meeting time and possible waiting lists may all affect your decision. Additionally, some activities are planned as District (or the larger County) activities where all the Groups join in the fun together.
Local Groups usually include Beavers (6-8), Cubs (8-10½) and Scouts (10½-14). Explorers (14-18) and Network (18-25) are single District level units.

WHAT WE DO
Scouts is the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts (and adult volunteers) develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
WHY GET INVOLVED
Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing.
As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life. Find out more.
