Welcome to Prestwich, Radcliffe & Whitefield Scouts

About Us


The Preswich, Radcliffe & Whitefield District is a collection of 10 Scout Groups near Bury, and are a part of the Greater Manchester North Scout County.


Over 1,000 young people are experiencing fun and adventure every week in the 10 groups that make up the PRaWs Scout District

We have a wealth of scouting experience in the 400 adult volunteers who’s dedication to the groups is fantastic. Without their dedication week on week we would not be able to provide the varied programme of activities and achieve the development potential in our young people.

We also have our own Scout Camp Site, Giant's Seat, which is situated and set in 65 acres of beautiful countryside and is perfect for wild camping. Click here to open their web site in a new window or click here to open a summary inside this site.

We welcome both young people and adults who are interested in joining us.  It’s a life changing adventure so explore the website and then click on join us to be part of the team.

All groups run a very exciting and refreshing meetings, including camps, water activities, climbing, survival skills along with confidence and building social skills are just a very small dose of what the leaders put into their planning.

We’re open to everyone and anyone. We put in a huge welcome to any new members including both boys and girls from any background or faith.
