One District One Movement
Scouting is the biggest mixed youth organisation in the UK and offers young people from 6-25 years the chance to make new friends, share adventures and learn skills for life.
We offer a wide range of activities and through our programme we encourage all our Scouts to do more, learn more and be more.
Welcome to Croydon District
Croydon District Scouts are based in the London Borough of Croydon and are part of Greater London South West Scout County.
We currently have 37 Scouts Groups and 8 Explorer Units with an active Scout Network. A Scout Group welcomes both boys and girls and typically consists of Beavers (6-8 years), Cubs (8-10.5 years) and Scout (10.5-14 years). To find your nearest Scout Group please scroll down for our search option. For the Explorer Units click here.
We are fortunate in Croydon to have two Scout Campsites – Bears Wood Campsite and Pinewood Scout Centre. Both offer a range of camping and various activities for both Scout Groups, Guides and other local youth organisations and schools.
The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
