Welcome to Stroud and Tetbury Scouts

By 2023 we will have prepared more young people with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme.

Our Vision

We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities.

Archery, bouldering, camping, expeditions, experiments, fire lighting, life-saving, raft building, sailing, zip lining… sound interesting?

Just a few of the activities over 1,100 young people aged between 6 and 25 in Stroud and Tetbury District get up to on a weekly basis; and the fun is managed (and often tested in advance) by over 200 adults.

If you want to get involved or find out more about the District as an Adult Volunteer or Youth member then click here.

We are part of the Gloucestershire Scout County, so if you want to find out more about scouting in the rest of Gloucestershire then check out the county site here.
