Scoutabout Activities

Help Make Scoutabout Special

The main reason Scoutabout has been so successful for many years, is because of the volume and variety of Activities that are available at the event. Whilst a number of these activities will be provided by Commercial Organisations and Specialist Scouting Teams, the vast majority of the activities provided are run by volunteer Leaders and Members of the Scout Network, Scout Active Support and Trefoil Guild.

The expectation is that every Scout Troop or Guide Unit will provide an activity at least one activity at the event. In most cases leaders of Scout Troops and Guide Units will be able to staff these activities, it is always sensible to gain additional support from Parents and other leaders to ensure that activities can run for the whole session and ensure at least one leader is available to support the members of their troop or unit.

A list of previous activities is provided below; however we do encourage anyone with new and exciting activities for the event.

We are now asking all registered groups and any additional providers to register their activity using the online booking system. This will allow the Activities Team to review the activities and approve any budget that may be required. Whilst some repetition is acceptable due to the size of the event, we are sure you will understand that too much repetition would be detrimental and therefore we do reserve the right to ask you to consider an alternative activity should this occur. This will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

To register please visit the online booking system, if you already have a login, please use this and register your activity from the menu link provided (
