Organisation aims and objectives

Clyde Scouts is one of eight geographical areas that supports Scout Groups and Districts in Scotland. Scouting provides adventure-based programmes for young people between the ages of 6 and 25 years old throughout the City of Glasgow, East Dunbartonshire, East Renfrewshire and North and South Lanarkshire. We believe that through adventure we challenge individuals so that they learn and experience new things that enrich their lives. Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.
