The Scout Association offers fun and everyday adventure to 573,000 young people between the ages of 6 and 25 across the United Kingdom.
We are proud to be part of the County that Scouting was born in and today Dorset Scouts offers fun, challenge and adventure to over 6,500 boys and girls aged between 6 and 25.
We enable young people from every background to reach their full potential through the unique experience of Scouting. They get the chance to enjoy new activities, make friends, develop skills, and make a positive impact in their communities.
Over 1,000 adult volunteers (there’s room for more!) help make Dorset Scouting amazing in a diversity of ways; either by working directly with our young people or by helping manage a Group by being a charity Trustee. Dorset Scouts supports its volunteers so they can get the most out of their experiences by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.
We proudly wear this necker and county badge:
