Farnham District ScoutsCharity Number: 1020617

Farnham District has a thriving Scouting community with over 1000 boys, girls and adults involved in eight Scout Groups, three Explorer Scout Groups, one Scout Network and a Scout Active Support Unit (SASu).  Known as Farnham District Scouts

We also have a thriving Campsite complete with Climbing Tower, both of which can be hired for events.

The district groups are made up as follows:-

Beaver, Cub and Scout Groups:

*2nd Farnham (Hale)*7th Farnham (Elstead)
*3rd Farnham (Town Centre) Scouts*8th Farnham (Rowledge)
*4th Farnham (Tongham)*11th Farnham (East Town)
*5th Farnham (Bourne)*12th Farnham (Wrecclesham)

Explorer Scouts:

  • Everest Mad Cats (based out of 11ths HQ on Guildford Road Trading Estate)
  • K2 (based out of 5ths HQ in the Bourne)
  • Scorpions (based out of 2nds HQ in Hale)
  • Eiger Tigers (based out of 7ths HQ in Elstead)

Scout Network (based out of 3rds Headquarters in Farnham)

Scout Active Support Unit (SASu) (based at Garner’s Field, District Camp Site)

Boys and girls join Beavers at 6 years, progress to Cubs at 8 and Scouts at 10½.

After Scouts at 14 years our young people can join Explorer Scouts, finally moving to the Scout Network with its age range of 18 to 25 years.

Many in turn then choose to become junior leaders and progress on through the movement.

Boys, girls and young adults are able to join any Scouting section at any stage providing they meet the entry age requirements.

Adults in scouting can be Leaders, Assistant Leaders, Specialist Advisors or Helpers either actively involved with young people in the individual Groups, or join the Scout Active Support Unit (SASu) which is made up of all ages and supports Scouting.

The District is run by our District Commissioner and a committee of trustees.

Farnham is part of Surrey Scouts with its County Commissioner and dedicated support team.

Scouting is a national organisation with our Chief Scout based in London and we are in turn all part of the Worldwide Scouting Movement.

Farnham has its own District campsite at Garner’s Field, Tilford.

The campsite is located in a secluded spot next to the River Wey and has modern facilities.  This is an important asset to Farnham Scouting.

The campsite is available for bookings.  You can download the booking form HERE
