Welcome to our website! We’re the 5th New Forest North (Testwood) Scout Group.

We’re all about bringing out the adventure in people, meeting new friends, getting stuck into the great outdoors and generally helping to create well rounded individuals.

We’re not just woggles, shorts and camping anymore!

Did you know that a quarter of Scouts in the UK  are girls? Surprised? Scouting has changed a lot over the past 10 years so discover more about Scouting today at our About Us page, or learn about our history.

Scouting is a character factory. And we count the adults in that too!

It’s really easy to have a go! If you’re under 25 then take a look at one of the youth sections – the first four sections can be found at our headquarters and the final runs locally in the area.

Scouting though is not just for young people. We wouldn’t run without our lovely adult volunteers and we would always welcome more people joining the movement. It’s super easy to volunteer, to find out more including how it can boost your CV, see our Join page.

You can get involved in so many ways, even raise money for us while you shop, without it costing you a penny more! Find out how on our Donate page.
