Every week, we provide a fun, adventurous programme to young people aged 4 to 25, and you could join us!

Welcome to Chelmsford Scouts

Chelmsford is the largest Scout District in the County of Essex.  We’re lucky to have a total of 26 Scout Groups made up of a Squirrel Dray, 29 Beaver Colonies, 32 Cub Packs and 29 Scout Troops. We also have 10 Explorer Units and a Scout Network. In all, we have over 2,000 youth members, supported by over 500 amazing adult volunteers.

Adult volunteers

The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
