** Welcome to our new website ** Seeking additional adult volunteers - please see latest news!


We enable young people from every background to enjoy new activities; experience the outdoors; make friends; develop skills; gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Welcome to 5th Crawley Scout Group

Founded in 1958, based at our HQ, Gales Drive, Three Bridges along with Section meetings also at the Maidenbower Community Centre.

Currently, we are mixing face-to-face meetings with remote Zoom meetings. Please check Programme detail for the latest arrangements.

Activities are a crucial part of Scouting and essential when providing an exciting, rewarding and memorable experience for our young people. Typically, we offer a number of adventurous activities on a regular basis such as rock-climbing, abseiling, kayaking, rifle shooting, archery, camping, cooking, bike riding and crate stacking.

Our District Explorers also offer the chance to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and also run various expeditions overseas.


Adult volunteers

The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
