Welcome to the Walton and Weybridge District Scouts website. We hope that you find what you are looking for and if you are interested in joining us in any way then please do get in touch to discuss what is available.
Walton and Weybridge District is part of the Borough of Elmbridge in Surrey. We have seven Scout Groups of various sizes including a Sea Scout Group and an Air Scout Group. Each group offers a wide range of activities, fun and adventure to young people aged 6 to 25.
All adults in Scouting volunteer their time play their part in achieving the aim of the Scout Association; to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities. This is done by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training based on the Scout Promise and Law.
There are many roles for adults in Scouting, itís not all about wearing a uniform and going to weekly meetings. Maybe that isnít for you, but there will be something that is. From Treasurers to, Secretaries, Chairmen, Fundraisers, Trainers, Supporters and Instructors, there is always something for everyone.
Did you know that there is certainly no shortage of young people wanting to get involved in Scouting? Itís quite the opposite in fact. We have waiting lists at most of our groups, as do all other Scout Groups across the country. It is leaders that we are short of! Without the leaders, we canít accommodate all the young people waiting to join us.
Have you thought of becoming a leader? Your help will make the difference to those young people waiting to join in the Scouting Adventure. Perhaps you canít spare the time to attend meetings every week? Donít let that put you off, there is always room for you and we can work around your commitments. Perhaps you have a friend or work colleague who is interested too? You could do a job share and take it in turns to come along or you could work something out with the other leaders in the Group.
