Become a Scout

Become a Scout

We are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 4 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.

Become a Scout

Scouts is all about fun, friendship and everyday adventure. We provide great opportunities for young people and adults from a range of different backgrounds.

Chorlton is an extremely popular and successful group, and it is normal for each of the Squirrels, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts Sections within the group to run at full capacity. As a result, entry numbers to all sections have to be managed by a waiting list to ensure an even spread of age groups within each section, and to avoid creating surges in pack or troop numbers at a later date.

Waiting List

Please note, we operate a single waiting list not one per section. Places are offered based on the evening that has space at the time. To request a specific evening please contact us. Please note requesting a specific evening may mean a longer wait.
