Dundee District Scouts

Dundee Scouting prepares our young people with the skills for life by offering a wide range of activities, challenges and experiences. We actively seek to encourage personal development, and aim to educate and inspire our members to be the best version of themselves.

Amongst other things, we want Scouting in Dundee to be youth led; giving our youth members a voice and encouraging them to challenge themselves to lead the direction of Scouting in Dundee.

Scouting is open to all young people aged 6 to 25, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief. We are always looking for adult members to join us as Leaders, Assistants or Administrators.

Volunteer with us

We’re always looking for more adults to join our adventure. We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways. Everyone has something to give and not all our volunteers wear uniform. Maybe you like working with young people, or prefer words and numbers, or are handy in the kitchen or with DIY and practical skills. Perhaps you can be part of the team tasked with maintaining and improving our District Camp Site at Douglaswood.

Volunteering with us is easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you can help weekly, once a month or just at special events or camps, there is role for you. No matter how you get involved, we’ll make sure you’re properly trained and supported.
