Aged 6 to 17, we currently have spaces in certain groups for new youth members to join Scouting in Crawley in one of the following sections.
Every week we give around 1000 6-25 year olds in Crawley the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life. Members tell us the top 5 reasons for joining Scouts are as follows:
1. Try over 200 activities
From archery and acting to street sports and zorbing, being a Scout gives you the chance to get stuck into loads of activities you wouldn’t normally get to do.
2. Make new friends
Going to your Scout meetings is a chance to meet up with your mates, have a laugh and do lots of exciting activities.You’ll meet adventurous people just like you who want to do something a little different.
3. Have fun
Chief Scout Bear Grylls says life is about grabbing opportunities! We agree! Above everything else, Scouting is all about enjoying yourself, whatever you’re doing – and there’ll always be plenty to do!
4. Get outdoors
As a Scout, you get to explore the big outdoors and travel to new places and try new things. Sounds better than being stuck in the house with nothing to do, right?
5. Learn exciting things
Not many people know about the stars at night, how to sail a dinghy or make a sausage stew on a campfire, but you soon will! Scouting helps you learn lots of new and amazing skills – and you get to earn badges and rewards along the way.
