Bampton Scouts

Scouting was founded in 1907 by Lord Baden Powell. The purpose of scouting is to help young people achieve their full potential., as individuals and as responsible members of their communities. They do this by taking part in a variety of activities and new experiences, exploring the outdoors, teamwork and by taking responsibility.
