Welcome to the Elvington Scout Group website

We at Elvington Scouts are part of the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation. Scouting changes lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills for life including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.


What do Scouts do? 

Scout Handbook 2008

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing, the list is endless. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
