About Us

Shropshire Scouts gives 3000 young people the chance to develop important #SkillsforLife supported by our 500 amazing volunteers.

Through the Scout programme young people become more resilient, confident and more compelled to take some responsibility for their communities. Whether it’s fire lighting at the Wrekin Campsite, canoeing on the River Severn, learning to navigate in the Shropshire Hills AONB, or simply learning to make friends in the Scout Hut Shropshire is a fantastic place to Scout.

We are 46 groups and 20 Explorer Units, and growing, spread across three administrative Districts all delivering a high quality programme.

To supplement the high quality programmes delivered by our groups, we have activity centres at Bickley Coppice and The Wrekin, the Andy Miles Paddle Sports Centre, a Target Shooting Squad who compete at a national standard, and very experienced Hill Walking, Climbing and Abseiling and Cave and Mine Exploration Teams.

We also work collegiately with the other Scout Associations in the Region and have strong links with other like minded organisations.

We hope this website serves to support our fantastic volunteers to make Scouting as fun for them as it is for the young people.

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