Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 400,000 young people and 100,000 adults across the UK. We do some pretty amazing things in Scouting, but for us, adventure is a way of life and not just an activity or expedition. Our Scouts grow in confidence by trying out new skills and stretching themselves. Whether it’s an Explorer trying out his French on an international trip or a Scout leading his Patrol for the first time, each time we challenge ourselves, it’s a step forward.  When a Scout stands up to a bully, or sticks up for what they believe in; that’s an adventure.

Tewkesbury District Scouts provides that adventure for young people in the Tewkesbury area, with active Scout Groups in Gotherington, Northway, Twyning, Winchcombe, Woodmancote and of course Tewkesbury. 14 to 18 year olds are served by four Explorer Scout Units across the District, including a specialised Young Leaders Unit. In every case, we help boys and girls from 6-18 years find their own adventure, on their own terms. This site will help you discover more about Scouting in our district, from news and events down to specific details on each individual group.
