UK Scouting is a huge organisation. There are over 100,000 leaders and nearly 600,000 children who are members. 16th Bermondsey is part of Southwark District, an inner-city area with surprisingly large green areas which is undergoing a lot of social change, especially in the North.

Any organisation the size of Scouts creates its own language for which you sometimes need a Scout Glossary to understand.

Scout ServiceWe also have a Scout Service Awards scheme on top of the badges which are earnt by the children for taking part in activities. Camping and outdoors is just a small part of it!
