Welcome to Folkestone and Hythe
Welcome to Folkestone and Hythe District, we are a thriving community made up of different scout groups based in south east Kent. We are proud to have ten scout groups and five explorer units across our district, with members from all walks of life, having fun, adventure and friendships every week of the year!
What do Scouts do?
Are you looking: to try something new, go on an adventure, have fun, make new friends, help the community or learn new skills? If so then Scouting is what you are looking for! There’s something for everyone, old or young. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
We take part in activities as diverse as survival skills, first aid, computer programming, archery, pioneering, camping, expeditions overseas, zorbing, microloighting, climbing, hiking, orienteering, karting, photography and much more!
What can Scouting do for me?
Everyone benefits hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience in scouting. It can help develop your social skills and independence, and gives our members access to some amazing and memorable opportunities.
As a Scout, you get to explore the big outdoors and travel to new places and try new things. Not many people know about the stars at night, how to sail a dinghy or make a sausage stew on a campfire, but you soon will! Scouting helps you learn lots of new and amazing skills – and you get to earn badges and rewards along the way.
Can Everyone Join Scouting?
We are proud to welcome boys and girls into Scouting from 6 years old upwards, and from any background, faith or religion.
If adults (18yrs +) are saddened because they never got the opportunity to do these activities, then why not do it now? become a volunteer and take part in everything that the young people do! If volunteering is not for you, then why not join Network? Network brings scouting to adults 18-25 years of age.
As long as you’re over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers. If you are aged between 14 to 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader.
How Do I Join?
We look forward to seeing you soon!
