We are
West Mercia Scouts

We believe that skills for life can prepare better futures for:
  • young people – by giving them the character, employability and practical skills they need to succeed.
  • volunteers – by equipping them with better skills, tools and support to deliver inspiring programmes.
  • society – by bringing people together and improving the lives of those in our communities.
Our County promises to support and develop inclusive and relevant Scouting to enable young people to gain the skills they need to succeed.
Adventure is at the core of Scouting. It is our personality and at the heart and soul of everything we do. It is the single most important thing about us that makes Scouting different from everyone else.
When we talk about adventure, we mean ‘everyday adventure’ – for everyone and at every level. Rather than sky diving, ice climbing or trips to the South Pole (although some of our Scouts have been there), the sort of adventure Scouting offers is the chance to experience something different and the opportunity to challenge ourselves. When a Beaver Scout wakes up the morning after a sleepover, or a Cub Scout has just got over her fear of heights by completing her first abseil – that’s adventure.
We do some pretty amazing things in Scouting, but for us, adventure is a way of life and not just an activity or expedition. Our Scouts grow in confidence by trying out new skills and stretching themselves. Whether it’s an Explorer trying out his French on an international trip or a Scout leading his Patrol for the first time, that’s adventure.
