About Us

East Herts District Scouts provides over 500 young people with the opportunities to develop skills for life – supported by around 200 valued volunteers including leaders, members of Executive Committees and District Members as well as group occasional helpers.

The district was created in 1908 by Scouts from 1st Broxbourne, 1st Wormley and 1st Cheshunt.

Background/Aims

We have 10 Scout Groups in the district, as well as an active Explorer Unit, a Scout Shop, an Active Support Unit and a band of Young Leaders who support leaders in the groups.

We run an awards programme for which nominations can be made throughout the year – with awards presented at our AGM (usually held in May).

The District is managed by a team of volunteers on the Executive Committee – all new volunteers are welcome to join the committee or to volunteer with a local group.

Across all groups we need new adult volunteers – get in touch if you’d like to know more.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
