Welcome to 1st Lightwater Scouts
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.
Why get involved?
It’s fun! Every year 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures as a part of Scouting.
The activities teach essential life skills such as leadership, independence, initiative and resilience. It’s an opportunity to try new things and make lifelong friends.

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?
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.
