What we do

Lightwater Scouts offers a unique combination of the great outdoors, adventure and fun to young people. There are a number of sections you can join, depending on your age.

Scouting enables people to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

    Beavers at Bazzaz 2018
    Bazzaz is Surrey Scouts’ triennial event for Beavers and in 2018 it opened its gates to Rainbows for the first time at Merrist Wood. It was a day of exciting activities under the theme of ‘Animal Magic!’ Our Beavers had an amazing time.

Volunteers & Fundraising

We believe every young person deserves the chance to push themselves, to develop and grow, to be woken in their tent to the sound of a bustling camp preparing breakfast and to experience life-changing opportunities. If you do too, perhaps you would like to get involved?

Volunteer Opportunities

As a voluntary organisation we look to raise funds to maintain our facilities and equipment. Perhaps you can help us, or come along to one of our events to support us.
