Welcome to Dorset County Scouts
It all began during the first nine days of August 1907 on Brownsea Island, Dorset. Lord Baden-Powell held an experimental camp to try out his ideas and brought together 20 boys from a variety of backgrounds.
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 8,000 boys and girls aged between 4 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.
