About Us

Scouts is all about fun, challenges and adventure.

The Scout Association is the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6 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.

Every year Scouts helps 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

What do Scouts do?

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.

1st Kings Langley Scout Group

1st Kings Langley Scout Group was formed on 20th October 1909 by Lt Branwell Henry Withers, who also founded troops in India, Africa and Ireland. He also ran the 1st Langleybury Troop that was formed the same year. Lack of leadership forced this troop to close and the boys amalgamated with 1st Kings Langley.

The Groups’s headquarters has been in the same field, to the rear of the Rose and Crown, since the end of the First World War.

The army is believed to have left behind an old timber shed at the bottom of the field that the Scouts took over and used until the new hut was constructed in its current location opening in September 1974.


What do volunteers do?

This everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee. We help volunteers get the most out of their experiences at Scouts by providing opportunities for adventure, training, fun and friendship.

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.
