About Us

North East Scotland Scouts prepare young people for Skills For Life

Each week Scouts, gives almost five thousand youth people across the North East of Scotland aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life. We are part of a bigger Association, which is the biggest youth organisation in the UK with hundreds of thousands across the UK and even millions across the world.

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience & skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.

We’re part of a worldwide movement and we often head away on exciting international trips to explore and discover across the world.


What do Scouts do?

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.


Who are North East Scotland Scouts?

The North East Region of Scottish Scouting came into existence on 1st April 2008 and has grown ever since. The emphasis of a region is to give local Districts more scope to plan and deliver programme support for young people and adults involved in Scouting.

The Regional Team of North East Scotland Scouts will focus on strategic and long-term objectives of ensuring effective communication and development as well as the training of adult members in the Region.  The regional team also includes members responsible for maintaining and growing Network and Explorer numbers with all District in the Region.  The region hosts all the specialist advisors such as International, Activities, Child Protection etc.

Please contact anyone of the Regional Team for more information about how Scouting can be developed for more young people and adults in your area.


There are lots of ways you can get involved, from helping out occasionally on a parent rota or volunteering your time as a leader to supporting local Scouting. Our volunteering opportunities are as varied as you! Regional we offer really flexible volunteering that you can fit round your schedule and when you want to make that difference or more locally, whether you’re helping a leader to run an activity in the local village hall, organising a night away, or buttering 120 slices of bread for a group of very hungry eleven year olds - no two Scout meetings are the same. The difference you make, though, is always great.

Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people. Our approach focuses on what you want to get out of volunteering with Scouts, while respecting how much time you can offer. Over 90% of Scout volunteers say that their skills and experiences have been useful in their work or personal life.
