Scouts

Get set for activities outdoors and indoors, for fun with new friends and old mates, for giving to the community in East Kilbride, and helping others.

  • Master new skills and try new things
  • Make new friends
  • Have fun and go on adventures
  • Explore the world around them
  • Help others and make a difference, in their own communities and beyond

Each week, we meet in a group called a Scout Troop to learn skills that will last a lifetime.

Scouts meet on a Friday evening at the Righead United Reformed Church, Carnegie Hill, East Kilbride. In addition to our weekly meetings, we hold several weekend camps at various sites around Scotland

Scouts enjoy a balanced programme, with a strong leadership structure, allowing young people to develop leadership skills, working as part of a close nit team.

Exploring

Scouts are constantly exploring their world and their own capabilities. We help you to learn how to make the most of your interests and abilities, from leading small groups to exploring your personal spirituality, from facing your fears to conquering a whole new activity.

With new friends, you’ll master the skills that will help you weather the storms of life, and try things you’d never get the chance to do at home or at school – working with trained volunteers to achieve whatever you set your mind to.

Scouts are at the age where they can experience the true adventure that scouting has to offer – from arts and crafts in the meeting place to jumping off cliffs, climbing, sailing, hiking, raft building and many more! We aim to give scouts a wide range of experiences so they can learn some new skills by accident along the way.

‘Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends. I’ve just been selected to go the World Scout Jamboree in Sweden and that’s going to be awesome.’

About the Scouts Section

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement for girls and boys from 10½ to 14. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.
