Welcome to Falkirk District Scouts

 

Falkirk District Scouting offers challenges and adventure to over 1000 young people and adults across the District and is part of a Scouting UK organisation with half a million members.

 

Our members grow in confidence by trying out new skills and stretching themselves. A Beaver having their first sleepover, a Cub completing a caving complex course, a Scout leading his or her patrol or an Explorer completing an international trip - each time it is a new challenge and an adventure.

 

Scouting is open to all young people (boys and girls) of every faith and background. There are also plenty of opportunities for adults to become involved as leaders or administrators.

 

We hope that you will find this website a useful source of information to visitors and a valuable resource for all leaders, supporters and members in the district.
