What we do
Cubs is the second section of Scouting. Cubs activities focus on fun and adventure and gaining new experiences like going camping for the first time or trying out new activities like climbing.
Scout Network is for 18 to 25 year olds looking for adventure. As a Scout Network Member you get to take part in all the usual great Scouting activities such as kayaking, climbing, camping… as well as work on projects helping to support your local community.
Reading Central District offers scouting in Caversham, Emmer Green, Reading West, Whitley, Shinfield, East Reading, and Reading Central. We have 12 Scout Groups, 6 Explorer Scout Units, and 1 Scout Network.
Join a Scout Group or Unit
With the many Scout Groups and Units in Reading, you will probably find one less than a mile from your doorstep. Our Scout Groups offer programme for ages 6-18, while the Explorer Scouts and Scout Network Units cater to 14-25.
The everyday adventure is possible thanks to our adult volunteers, who support Scouts in a wide range of roles from working directly with young people, to helping manage a Group, to being a charity Trustee.
