WELCOME TO BERRYLANDS SCOUT GROUP!
We are based in the heart of Berrylands in Surbiton, Surrey (click here for map) and offer scouting for local young people from the age of 5¾ to 18.
Scouting gives young people opportunities to take part in a wide variety of fun and exciting activities and is a great way for them to make friends.

WHAT WE DO
At Berrylands Scout Group, we offer a wide range of activities. Here are some examples to give you a flavour.
Camping has long been a favourite activity amongst Scouts. We try to hold number of camps throughout the year at various locations from the HQ itaself to District site at Polyapes and further afield. Summer Camp in August is the highlight of the year.
From time to time we make trips out to various venues to enjoy activities like Indoor Climbing, Laserquest and others.
Every week the section leaders organise active games which everyone can participate in and enjoy - a great way to let off steam and stay healthy.
Could you cook a healthy three-course dinner for four with a hot main course using only two gas rings - all for less than £25? That was the challenge for this year's County Cooking Competition.
Air Rifle Shooting
Every year, Kingston District hold an air rifle shooting competition to find out who is the best marksman in the district.
All Scouts, Cubs, Beavers and Explorers are encouraged to earn badges. They are attached to the uniform and show that the person wearing it has achieved something special perhaps by acquiring a new skill. There are are a wide variety of badges available to try for, so that everyone should be able to find something to suit them.
