About Us



Thanet District Scouts is a very active Scouting district that provides fun, challenge and adventure to over a thousand young people between the ages of 6 – 25 years old. Our district covers Scouting across Ramsgate, Broadstairs, Margate, Birchington, Westgate, Minster and Garlinge.

The aim of Scouting is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of the local community.

In addition to the exciting weekly activities that our young people get involved in, we also deliver a diverse programme of activities for our young people across the District and the wider area of Kent including kayaking, abseiling, hiking, archery, micro-lighting, zorbing – in fact you name it and we have probably done it!
