Kidderminster & District Scouts

Scouts is all about fun, challenges and adventure.

The Scout Association 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.


Kidderminster

Scouting in Kidderminster is welcoming more and more young people every year, and the reasons for this aren’t difficult to understand! It’s all about friendship, fun and most importantly, everyday adventure for our youngsters.

There are 11 Scout Groups in Kidderminster and the surrounding area, providing age appropriate activities and challenges to boys and girls aged 6 to 14, as well as 4 Explorer Scout Units for young adults over 14, all run by teams of dedicated adult leaders who are vetted and trained to the Scout Association’s high standards.

As Bear Grylls, the Chief Scout, says, ‘Two things matter in life: following your dreams and looking after your friends. That’s what we love about Scouting, it’s about doing great things, loving and enjoying the great adventures, and helping others to do the same’.


What do Scouts do?

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.


What do volunteers do?

This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.

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.


Rhydd Covert Campsite

We are also very fortunate to own and operate a scout campsite ‘Rhydd Covert’. It is set in 50 acres of un-spoilt woodland and grassed areas, which fall naturally into individual sites of varying sizes.
