8th Basingstoke (U.R.C.)

Based in Basingstoke town centre and part of the Basingstoke East District, 8th Basingstoke (U.R.C.) Scout Group caters for young people aged 6 to 14. Every week almost 100 young people join us to experience everyday adventure and take part in our quality Scouting programme.

The group has a Beaver colony, Cub pack and a Scout troop with a really friendly and energized leader team across all sections. The group was founded in 1928 and has been active since (apart from a break during WW2), the group recently its 90th birthday.

There is fun to be had for all sections with plenty of nights away opportunities for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We would love for you to come and join our adventure. We are completely inclusive and open to all.
