Our Group


We are a friendly and active Scout group, offering new friendships and skills for life to the young people of Boscombe for over 100 years.

We run sections for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and meet on Thursday evening in school term time, at the Salvation Army on Palmerston Road.

If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.
What is Scouting?


Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:

  • enjoy what they are doing and have fun

  • take part in activities indoors and outdoors

  • learn by doing

  • share in spiritual reflection

  • take responsibility and make choices

  • undertake new and challenging activities

  • make and live by their Promise
