Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.
At Polesworth we strive to bring the Scouts the best programme we can and as many new experiences as possible. With our new HQ building we are able to offer our members a range of amazing opportunities from archery and shooting to kayaking.
