The coronavirus has now caused The Scout Association to suspend all face-to-face meetings until further notice. However this will not stop us getting on with Scouting. You can now earn our 'Carry on Scouting' badge if you are a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer. This badge is open to anyone in the Movement.


We prepare more young people with the skills for life, supported by amazing leaders who deliver inspiring programmes. We are growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact across the Forest of Dean.
