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

We also have a thriving Campsite at Garners Field, which can be hired for events.  For more information on our Campsite and its facilities click HERE.

Farnham District also have our own Scout Shop, based at Daniel Hall, Farnham, which many other Scout groups outside our own district use. You can see HERE for more information on the shop.  The shop now takes credit and debit cards.

So contact us and join in the fun!

The district groups are made up as follows:-

Beaver, Cub and Scout Groups:


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)
  • Eagles (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.

Our fabulous campsite is available for bookings!  You can make a provisional booking HERE
