Welcome to Banstead District

Banstead District nestles between London and Surrey. It is a part of Surrey Scout County and the UK Scout Association.

We are an active District with a variety of groups which have Beaver Colonies (6 – 8 years), Cub Packs (8 – 10½ years) and Scout Troops 10½ – 14 years). We have 2 Explorer Units (14 – 18 years) and a Network (18 – 25 years). Boys and girls are welcome to join in every section.

The groups meet throughout the year, each at their own HQ. They also meet together for shared activities within the District and the County from time to time.
