Welcome to 12th Hampstead Scout Group

12th Hampstead need you more than ever before.

Many of our leaders are moving on from 12th to study at university, take up new jobs or new Scouting roles. They are all planning to stay in touch and will support us when they can on weekend events, but we need new adults to support, lead and inspire for our weekly meetings.

If you’re looking to give something back, or take on a new challenge. Or you might know someone else who would enjoy it. Or any 18+ who needs a CV boost or developing leadership skills.

If you don’t want other young people missing out on these amazing opportunities (that are equally as fun for adults too!).

Please get in touch, contact us here. Even committing to 1 week a month will really help.

Why not come along one week soon, just to give it a go.


12th Hampstead is one of the largest Scout Groups in North London, with over 100 young people across the 3 sections, welcoming boys and girls aged between 6 and 14 into the group. We run three sections: Beavers (6-8 year olds), Cubs (8-10 year olds) and Scouts (10-14 year olds). We also have Young Leaders (14-18 year olds) who assist in running each section.


We pride ourselves on being an active, adventurous and youth led Scout group. Each section meets once a week through term-time (in NW3) and has several opportunities throughout a year to participate in weekend activities. These range from adventurous activities (such as archery, rock climbing and kayaking, to name a few) to camps and campfires to trips to theme parks and Buckingham Palace. Our activities are varied and are chosen by the young people in the group.

You can see what we’ve been doing recently on our Blog, and you can see more detail about each section on their relevant pages: Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

This website provides additional information for prospective members, young people, leaders, parents and supporters of the group.
