Scouting and Guiding

The brain child of Robert Baden-Powell in the early 20th Century, scouting and guiding now provides fun, adventure, training and education to boys and girls all over the world. Thousands of volunteers provide a safe environment for children to learn about each other, get involved in the community, and to be the best they can be.

We know that many visitors to Activity Village are involved in scouting and guiding and therefore decided to bring together a collection of activities and resources that might be useful. If you have any ideas or special requests please do get in touch!
