Bentley Copse Activity Centre is owned and managed by Surrey Scouts. Adventure is at the core of Scouting. The Scout Association passionately believes in helping their members fulfil their full physical, intellectual social and spiritual potentials by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves. The Centenary year will provide even more opportunities for members to do this, and to continue to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility.
Over 200 activities are offered by Scouting around the UK, made possible by the efforts of 100,000 voluntary adult leaders. This has helped make Scouting the largest co-educational youth Movement in the country.
Adults working in Scouting contribute in excess of 364 million hours of voluntary work each year to their local communities.
The number of volunteers working for Scouting is bigger than the combined workforces of the BBC (24,000) and the Olympic Gamesmakers (70,000) put together.
Worldwide Scouting has 28 million Members both male and female and operates in nearly every country in the world.
