About Us

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, or even computer programming. There is something for everyone!

Scouting offers fun and friendship, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. We have a positive impact on young people, our 100,000 adult volunteers and the communities in which we live.

Scouts allows young people to reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

What about Scouting in Lenzie?

The 12th Glasgow Scout Group is a Scout group with it HQ based in Lenzie.

We are one of the oldest Scout groups in the UK, founded in May 1908. In 2008 we celebrated our centenary just one year after the centenary of the world Scout movement.

We have three Beaver Colonies, three Cub Packs, a Scout Troop and an Explorer Unit.

All groups are open to both boys and girls. Each section meets one evening a week at our Hall throughout school terms.

We are a very active Group. Our Cub, Scout and Explorer Sections have the opportunity to Camp at least once a year whether it be the weekend Cub Winter Camp or a Sub Zero under canvas in February. See the pictures from our latest adventures in our gallery

Full details about each of the Sections are on the Section pages.
