About us

Mid Herts District covers Welwyn Garden City, Welwyn, Hatfield and Codicote.

Every week over 750 young people aged from 6 to 18 from different faiths, backgrounds and abilities enjoy the fun challenge and adventure that Scouting has to offer.

Scouting helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

We currently have 10 Scout Groups, 4 Explorer Units and 1 Scout Network Unit and a Scout Active Support Unit, over 750 young people are supported by over 150 adult volunteers.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
