  • Scouting is not just for boys

 

  • Girls have been part of the adventure since 1976

 

  • Scouting is not a Christian Organisation

 

  • We're a multi-faith movement

 

  • Scouting is not for everyone

 

  • Yet, 30,000 young people are desperate to join, but we need more volunteers to help

 

  • Scouting is not linked to the army

 

  • We're the largest membership organisation in the world working for peace

 

  • Scout Leaders are not just male

 

  • 44% of our Leaders are female

 

  • Not all Scouts can be cool*

 

 

  • Scouts do not say dyb dyb dyb

 

  • They havent done since the '60s... but they still do their best

 

  • Scouting is not about Bob-a-Job week

 

  • But it is good for getting you a job!

 

  • Scouts do not just wear green

 

  • They think green too

 

  • Scouting does not just happen in a Scout hall

 

  • You can't do over 200 adventurous activities inside!

 

  • Scouting is not just about tying knots

 

  • It's pretty hard to tie one while sailing, climbing or parascending

 

* But these manage somehow....
