Activities

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do at the 27th Woolwich. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart.

It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet lifelong friends.

We offer hundreds of activities, as diverse as:

  • Kayaking
  • Abseiling
  • Staged performances in our District gang show
  • Climbing
  • Archery
  • High ropes courses

There’s something for every young person, whatever their physical ability.

How our activities works

Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced range of activities, events and experiences, based around our balanced programme in each section.

The programmes vary depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.

Together we help Scouts get the most out of their Scouting experience by including as many elements as possible within the activities on offer. And, the older they get, the more input young people themselves have in their own activity selection.

Hiking in the dark. Spending their first night away from home. Attending a World Scout Jamboree

Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
