Scout Organisation

Scouting works like this

  • Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers
  • Each section has a leader
  • Each section is part of a group, 16th Bermondsey in our case
  • A group is run by the GSL (Group Scout Leader) and the Committee
  • A group is part of a District, Southwark in our case, which is run by a District Commissioner aided by Assistant District Commissioners for each section (Beavers etc.) and other roles such as training
  • A District is part of a County, Greater London South in our case, which is run by a County Commissioner aided by Assistant County Commissioners for each section and other roles
  • A county is part of a country, the United Kingdom in our case (but you knew that), which has the Chief Scout as its figurehead – currently Bear Grylls the adventurer, survivalist and all round tough guy.
