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.

2nd Cranham Lockdown

101836413 3371723586185683 2622394369650458624 n copy2nd Cranham cubs have been extremely busy since lockdown and between them have earned 125 badges including 88 activity badges, 7 great indoors, and the completion of 13 challenge badges meaning 2 of our cubs got their chief scout silvers and we've not finished yet. We had an isolation international space camp to coincide with the recent space rocket launch to the ISS. We started with a zoom call (22 of us including 4 leaders and 1 young leader) we played a game and taught the cubs a knot, it was mayhem but great fun. Sleepover was Friday night but some cubs slept over on Saturday too. We gave them lots of missions to complete over the weekend and most completed them all. The cubs continue with our support to achieve their badges that we would normally be doing on a pack night, they are working really hard and we are extremely proud of them and thank the parents for their support and help.
