Welcome to -

The 1st Newbury Scout Group.

Why join Scouts? Well where do i start !!!!

Scouting is an international Movement with over 28 million Members worldwide spread across 216 countries and territories. The number of countries, recognizing the values of Scouting and accepting its principles are steadily increasing.
The Scout Association in the UK accepts Members of all major faiths and offers equal opportunities to all young people in the community, no matter what their social, religious or ethnic background may be. Scouting is not a religious body, it is an organisation that encourages young people to grow spiritually and develop within their own faith and denomination. It has a positive policy of integration and welcomes children and young people who have physical and mental disabilities.
There are about 500,000 people in membership throughout the United Kingdom. This includes about 100,000 adults who have taken up appointments as voluntary Leaders, Administrators and Supporters.
During 1991, girls were admitted to the Beaver Scout, Cub Scout and Scout Sections. This complemented the admission of young women to the Venture Scout Section in 1976.
During the spring of 2002 The Scout Association launched a new Program for young people aged 6-25. This was the largest change to our curriculum for nearly 40 years. A careful strategy of change was devised to help people move forward into delivering a totally new way of providing Scouting, particularly the 14-25 age range. Two new Sections were created to replace Venture Scouting; Explorer Scouts (14-18) and the Scout Network (18-25). This coincided with a complete re-branding of The Scout Association.
