More and more people are joining Scouting in Ely and its surrounding villages all the time; over 500 young people aged 6 to 25 enjoy the Scouting adventure every week through Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and the Scout Network.


It takes over 150 adult volunteers to make this happen as Scout Leaders, Assistants, Helpers, Managers and Administrators, all playing a major part in delivering an amazing adventure week in, week out.

So what about you, ever wanted to learn a new skill as a Cub, scale new heights as a Scout or even hold a camp as a Leader, why not join the adventure today and make it happen!

Each week we provide Scouting activities to over 500 young people across Ely and the surrounding villages.

We can provide places to more young people with your help! It doesn’t have to be much, the amount of time you give is entirely up to you be that 30 minutes a month to 4 hours a week…we’ve got a role to suit you.

Due to the increasing numbers of children waiting to join Scouting in and around Ely, we urgently need adult volunteers to help us to deliver the everyday adventure which Scouting offers.

We have many roles on offer, from running or assisting with a busy Beaver, Cub or Scout section, to back office roles such as supporting your local Scout group with administration or fundraising ideas…..the opportunities are endless.

Full training is provided where needed, and there’s plenty of support so there’s no need to feel like you’ve jumped in at the deep end.

As well has helping your local group, Scouting is as much fun for the adult volunteers as it is for the young people who attend every week. You can learn new skills such as the traditional Scout skills of camping, fire lighting, backwoods cooking, plus meet new friends and if you’re up for it, go camping, climbing, canoeing, abseiling, go-karting………
