What is Scouting?

Knots, woggles, khaki shorts? Prepare to be surprised


Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities

We are in good company too, David Attenborough, David Beckham, Tim Peake and Jamie Oliver were all Scouts, along with 11 of the 12 Men who have walked on the moon!

"Every child has the right to an adventure. Life is about grabbing opportunities. The prizes don’t always go to the biggest, the best and the strongest – they go to those who persevere. These are simple life lessons that Scouting teaches." - Bear Grylls

What about Scouting in Lenzie?

The 12th Glasgow Scout Group is a Scout group with it's HQ based in Lenzie.

We are one of the oldest Scout groups in the UK, founded in May 1908. In 2008 we celebrated our centenary less than one year after the centenary of the world Scout movement.

We have three Beaver Colonies, three Cub Packs, a Scout Troop and an Explorer Unit. We also have a second Scout Troop starting after the summer.

A number of our sections currently run waiting lists. With your help we can change this ... volunteer

All groups are open to both boys and girls. Each section meets one evening a week at our Hall throughout school terms.

We are a very active Group. Our Beavers, Cub, Scout and Explorer Sections have the opportunity to Camp at least once a year whether it be the weekend Cub Winter Camp or at Sub Zero under canvas in February. See the pictures from our latest adventures in our gallery

Full details about each of the Sections are on the Section pages.
