What is Scouts?

Scouting provides an exciting and adventurous experience for over 500,000 young individuals in the UK. It offers them the chance to grow and achieve their full potential. The core principles of Scouting encourage young people to develop self-discipline, engage in group activities, gain knowledge about the world, and contribute to society.

Through a wide range of activities, young people are challenged and equipped with various skills. These activities enable them to work towards earning different awards and badges in Scouting. These include adventure, outdoor skills, teamwork, leadership, artistic abilities, faith, community impact, fire safety, global awareness, astronomy, crafts, fundraising, water activities, and many more.

In January 2024, ACM Scouts Insha’Allah will be launched as part of the Tameside Scouts District. We are proud to be the first Muslim Scouts group in Ashton. The success of Muslim Scouting can be attributed to the shared values between Scouts and Islam. Integrity, respect, care, belief, and cooperation are all fundamental principles that we aim to instil in our young Muslims today.
