4 weeks that could change your life

We've got a simple challenge for anyone over the age of 18 this year, a one which might help you with popular New Year resolutions. Have fun? Be more adventurous? Give something back to your community? Be more active? We can help you with all of these...

Our challenge is this:

Visit us for 4 weeks

Whether you want to get stuck in mud, admin, can help regularly or occassionally, we'd love to meet you. Over the 4 weeks you'll get to meet us, find out what new adventures could await you and of course, meet our sections! If you want to work with one of our sections, starting with Beavers from age 6 right through to Explorers up to age 18, we'll pair you up with an experienced Leader to comfortably show you the ropes.

You don't have to come every week. You don't have to have Scouting experience. You don't have to be a mountaineer.

All of our Leaders, occassional helpers and members of the executive committee are passionate about leading adventure, giving opportunities and life-long memories to young people in the Washington area. Not only will volunteering with the Scout Assocation really boost your CV, but you'll also be a part of those life-long memories. For those looking to go into teaching or youth work, whatever your age, we can give you invaluable experience of working with young people.
