1st Huntington (All Saints) Scout group was formed in the Summer of 1951 and has been offering Scouting to Young People in the local area for over 50 years!
We have our own headquarters (or Scout Hut!) at the rear of St Andrews Church in Huntington, the building was extensively re-built in the 1980’s and 1990’s and offers an excellent base for our activities.
Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart. It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet life-long friends.
We are members of the Scout Association, the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering young people fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities. 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. All led by our fantastic team of volunteers!
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 the 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.
