AFTER celebrating getting its 6,500 Scouts out and active again, Dorset Scouts is inviting new boys, girls, young adults and volunteers to join in the fun and make summer unmissable.

In the county where Scouting was born, Dorset Scouts has now fully and safely reopened all 100 groups throughout Dorset and is restarting all its beloved and exciting outdoor activities including archery, camping, dinghy sailing and much more.

With Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Network Scouts groups all returning to outdoor face-to-face meetings, there’s never been a better time for children and young adults to enjoy the wonders of the wilderness while making friends, learning new skills and doing something extraordinary.

County Commissioner Brendan Booth said: “Over the past 12 months we’ve been running great online competitions, events and home camps, but it’s now time to get out and live our best lives, safely.

“That’s why we’ve fully reopened across Dorset and are planning an action-packed summer of outdoor events for boys, girls and young adults to get them playing, having fun and making friends.

“And, with so many groups, one is bound to be on your doorstep.”

Dorset Scouts is also looking for volunteers to take part in its flexible, award-winning training scheme and be at the heart of the action.

The scheme, designed to support adult volunteers, has already helped over 2,000 men and women take up a variety of roles while enjoying the excitement of Scouting.
