County

There are over 6,000 members of the Scout Association in Cambridgeshire.

There are 1,200 adult volunteers making this happen working directly to deliver the youth programme and to provide management and administrative support.

This makes Cambridgeshire Scouting one of the largest co-educational youth movements in the County.

The County Team want to help...

Holding an event? Would you like the CC or one of the County Team to come and make the Tea, sweep the floor or even hand out the odd Award, let us know what your up to and what you would like from the county team here.

Ideally we would need at least two week notice (they are busy people) but they would love to attend your event, met the young people of Cambridgeshire and hear what you have to say.
