Welcome to our Scout District
Long Eaton and District would like to help you advertise your fundraising events, congratulate members on achievements and just generally let everyone know what you have been up to recently.
The District team has a list of members you can contact in the District
Long Eaton & District run a great programme of events for all of the sections at District level. Below is a information of all up and coming events that are happening across our District.
Each section has at least one Chief Scout's Award; ranked bronze, silver, gold, platinum and diamond. Many older Scouts also complete the various parts of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, or go on an expedition to gain their Explorer Belt. The Queen's Scout Award marks the pinnacle of effort and achievement for Explorer Scouts and Scout Network members. There are also a number of special awards for long or outstanding service, available to young people and adults alike.
If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.
There are 400,000 young people in Scouting, spread across Six sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts, Scout Network and the Active Support. Each section has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards.
