The 9th Reigate Scout Group is part of The Scout Association and together we are the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation offering fun, everyday adventure & #skillsforlife to young people.
The main goal is to help young people achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as Members of their local, national and international communities.
Based in Lower Kingswood. We offer fun, challenge and life-changing adventure, preparing and giving young people #skillsforlife and unique experiences. We believe young people deserve the character, employability and practical skills to succeed and so encourage them to do more, learn more and be more.
As detailed on the Join the Adventure! page we have two sections in the Group:
We also have good links to Scout (10 ½ -14) and Explorer (ages 14-18) groups nearby in Reigate & Redhill and the oldest scouting section; Network (ages 18-25) is offered in Reigate.
We are always happy to hear from potential new adult volunteers, visit the volunteer page for more information.
General Information about the Scout Association
Visit scouts.org.uk to find out more about what Scouts is and what we do
The Scout Association Mission – We (Scouting) exist to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society. We are guided by a set of values and our ‘scout method’.
Each week, we give over 460,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.
We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always.
We’re a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
What Scouts do
Young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid. And research proves it really works. A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too.
