Welcome to the website for Hornchurch Scout District

Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 400,000 young people and 100,000 adults across the UK and here in Hornchurch District we Digital District Badgeare proud to offer Scouting to over 1500 of these youngsters, in Beaver Colonies, Cub Packs ,Scout Troops and Explorer Sections in Ardleigh Green, Corbets Tey ,Cranham, Elm Park, Emerson Park, Hornchurch, Rainham and Upminster..
We believe in helping our Members fulfil their potential by working in teams and this gives them the skill to do and think for themselves. People from every background and culture have the opportunity to stretch themselves, learn new skills and make life long friends.
Whatever your age, Scouting in the 21st century is challenging, stimulating, imaginative,  rewarding and above all FUN!!! Scouting is for young people from the age of 6 through to 25, with each of these youth sections following an exciting programme.
The  challenge and adventure isn’t just for our youth members. Adult volunteers have lots of fun too, in the knowledge that they are giving something back to society by helping children and young people meet their potential.

Kayaking on the River Chelmer

002001 2Great day out when the Water Team took six Network Scouts kayaking on the River Chelmer last August. We all met just north of Chelmsford and had a quick introduction to safety and how to kayak. Then on to the water for a three hour paddle ending up back at the start with two locks to negotiate on the way. When we finished, the networkers helped to get the kayaks back on the trailer and then off to the pub the recover.
If any section or group of leaders are interested in going kayaking, just contact the Water Team and we will be pleased to take you out.
