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.
Why not see what Scouting can offer you by contacting Lee Copleston, the District Commissioner on dc@hornchurchscouts.org.uk

2nd Squirrels Heath Beavers Stone Competition

This week, I asked the Beavers to design, draw, colour or paint on a Pebble; either a design thanking the NHS or something inshimage005 relation to Beavers and our colony. We are aiming to create a ‘Pebble Patch’, with all of our Beavers’ designs, in the field of our meeting headquarters- Arnold Lodge. I asked for an emailed image of the pebbles, and I was astonished by the designs I received. We had a great response and all of our Beavers’ designs were brilliant! I promised a prize for everyone that sent me a design, when we return to Beavers eventually! Well Done to all those who got involved at 2nd Squirrels Heath Beavers.
