About us

One hundred years ago a group of 20 young people camped on an island off the Dorset coast. Little did they know that that camp would start an international movement spanning all five continents with over a billion members.

Today Scouting is a thriving multicultural community with hundreds of members in Keighley alone. Catering for boys and girls aged from 6 106 Scouting exists to provide young people with experiences and friends that will last a life time. It encourages social, academic and physical development through a balanced program of teaching, fun and adventure.

The movement is divided into 5 sections each providing a specialist program of training, activities and badges.
