Sections and ages

In July 2003 the four remaining Scout Districts in Croydon merged to form 1 large District called Croydon Scouting. This action was carried out to further enhance the infrastructure of Scouting in Croydon to ensure that the youth of Croydon were, and are still being offered the very best of Scouting, wherever they may live in the Borough.

Nearly 10 years on Croydon Scouting is the largest Scouting District in the Scout County of GLSW (Greater London South West). We continue to provide active Scouting to thousands of young people in and around the areas of Purley, Selsdon, Addington, Croydon, Coulsdon, Crystal Palace, Upper Norwood, South Norwood, Thornton Heath and Norbury. In Croydon we are fully  committed to offer quality Scouting to all young people and as a District team we are always looking at ways to better support local Scouting. We continue to promote Development, Achievement and Best Practice to all our Scout Groups and encourage our Groups to engage with their local communities.

Croydon Scouting offers the complete Scouting experience and would welcome your enquiries to join our growing membership. Scouting is co-educational and inter-denominational welcoming both male and female members into all our Sections. We also welcome all enquiries from adult volunteers.
