Cheshire is one of the largest Scout Counties in the UK with a
total membership of over 12,000 and growing.
Scouting in the UK provides adventurous activities and personal
development opportunities for half a million young people
(including 60,000 girls). Internationally over 28 million young
people and 4 million adult volunteers enjoy the benefits of
Scouting across 216 countries.
Personal development means promoting the physical, intellectual,
social and spiritual well-being of the individual, helping them
achieve their full potential. In Scouting, we believe that young
people develop most when they are 'learning by doing,' when they
are given responsibility, work in teams, take acceptable risks and
think for themselves.
