Welcome to

Lewisham Scouting

Each week over 1000 Scouts get together to learn something new with friends of all ages, races and creeds. Our volunteers build their CVs whilst running scouting activities to connect inner city children with their environment. With international trips and an active district programme, we provide the best extra curricular activity you could hope for.

Everyone’s welcome here. Regardless of your child's academic and physical abilities – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it. Sign up to help your child discover their ‘thing’: from abseiling to coding to performance art and everything in between.


Thinking of
Volunteering?


The Scouts offers an award-winning training scheme for volunteers and social teams from across the district, ensuring our adults get as much from Scouts as our young people.


We are looking for Youth Members doing amazing things to promote across our website and the District as a whole.
