OUR STORY

Scout Adventures is owned and run by the Scouts. For over 100 years, we have delivered opportunities and activities to millions of young people.

We are founded on our famous Scout values and are proud offer our expertise to a new generation of young people.

When Baden-Powell first took 20 young people to Brownsea Island, Dorset, in 1907 he was delivering one of the first ever residential experiences. Instinctively, he knew that the outdoors would bring out the best in them, giving them opportunities to develop their skills and confidence. Today, outdoor learning is still considered one of the best ways to transform lives and future prospects.

We’ve come a long way since then (they didn’t use GPS, but our values of care, belief, integrity, cooperation remain the same. When you allow a young person to take a risk in a safe environment, they learn and grow.

 

 

OUR PROMISE OF QUALITY

Scouting is trusted by 40 million members and their families around the world. As the original pioneers of outdoor learning, we believe we offer the broadest range of activities, the best trained experts and the widest pool of skills to draw upon.

WE TAKE FUN PRETTY SERIOUSLY

Ask a young person what they want out of their experience and chances are, they’ll talk about fun and friends. And this has a powerful effect on their learning. Happier children learn more, achieve more and do more.

That’s why we promote a happy, caring environment at all our centres. Time around the campfire, bonding over lunch and relaxing in the freedom of the outdoors is vital to having fun. Like you, we take a tough line on bullying and keep a watchful eye to make sure no one is excluded.
