About us

At Chorlton Scout Group, we prepare young people with skills for life.

About Us

Scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week – having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.

At Chorlton Scout Group, we prepare young people with skills for life. You can learn survival skills, first aid, cooking and even expedition skills that can lead on to Duke of Edinburgh Awards. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world. There’s something for every young person, whatever their physical ability.

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

There’s No Better Time To Join The Adventure

It doesn’t matter whether it’s you or your child who wants to join us, or even if your child is of joining age yet or not, because you can sign up now and ensure they are allocated a place when it becomes available.

Our Dedicated Adult Volunteers…

Makes us one of the largest, luckiest, and most family-friendly Groups in Manchester and with the Association’s training scheme, we are a highly-skilled bunch of people too. But we always need more help. Check out our volunteering opportunities to see how you can help. You don’t need to be Bear Grylls to volunteer with scouting!

Made for Adventure

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart. Through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives.

Over 200 Young People…

Enjoy exciting, challenging, and stimulating activities each week. This has a positive impact on their lives. Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced range of activities, events and experiences, based around subject areas we call Programme Zones. These cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
