Welcome to Chelmsford District

Chelmsford is the largest Scout District in the County of Essex. We would also suggest that we are the best Scout District in the County!

We are comprised of 26 Scout Groups with a total of 29 Beaver Colonies, 32 Cub Packs, 29 Scout Troops, 10 Explorer Units and a Scout Network. In all, we have over 2,000 youth members, led by over 500 adult volunteers.

Adult volunteers

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