What we do

If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.

Every year we help over 450,000 young people in the UK enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available.

At Kirkburton, we have Beavers (6-8 yrs), Cubs (8-10 1/2 yrs) and Scouts (10 1/2-14 yrs) meeting in our HQ on Hallas Road.
