Welcome

Welcome to the Dorking District Scout Website. We hope that you find all the information that you need about local scouting. The aim of scouting is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national, and international communities. We achieve this through the provision of exciting and adventurous activities with progressive training based on the Scout Promise and Law, guided by adult leadership. There are 8 Scout Groups in the Dorking District: two in the town and one each in North Holmwood, Newdigate, Holmwood and Capel, Brockham, Leigh, and Charlwood. Each Group serves its local community, not only by providing places in each Section for young people but also by attending Remembrance Day services and participating in the St George’s Day Parade in Dorking. The District also joins with the Scout County for County-wide events. If you have any questions, please see the individual Sections for more information or contact me via my email address at julia@dorking-scouts.org.uk.

Happy Scouting!
