Scouting offers fun, challenge and adventure with over 200 activities from Archery to Zorbing. We believe in helping our members fulfil their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves. We give people of every background the chance to stretch themselves, learn new skills and make life long friends.

A Million Handsis a project that aims to mobilise half a million Scouts to take action on the issues that matter most to them. To help them achieve this, there are fantastic resources available on the new A Million Hands website, which are full of activity ideas for volunteers and awareness-raising projects for all sections.
We made a Promise to help others…let's show the world we mean it.
Devon Explorers have put together a small experienced leadership team, to take a small group of Explorers to the 8th Russian JAMBOREE at Borodino.
The organisers are expecting this jamboree to have about 1000 young people attending and looks like a scouting skill jamboree. it will be small by modern standards but we think will be the most culturally interesting that Devon Explorers have ever attended. Find out more
This is a fantastic opportunity to attend one of the larger International Jamborees. The Finland International Jamboree will have about 15,000 Scouts attending with about 1,500 of these being international Scouts (from outside Finland). The jamboree will be held in a wild forest location in southern Finland and will offer not only bucket loads of activities, but also the opportunity to explore the wider family of Scouting and make friends from all over the world.

In 2016, a group of Devon Explorers intend to embark on an incredible Adventure to achieve their Explorer Belt Award. A lot is left to do but preparations are already underway.
The Explorer Belt is a whole new experience which is completely different to anything you’ll have done in scouting before. It involves those taking part to organise things for themselves and to plan the journey themselves with help and support from their leadership team. This specific one is to Finland, through Sweden, to finish at Roihu, the Finnish International Jamboree which another group of Devon Explorers will be taking part in. Find out more
