Woodlands 2021

Woodlands 2021 announcement!

Happy New Year to everyone, we hope you’re keeping safe, well and busy. That’s certainly the case for our County team, as after a year of negative news we would like to bring you some positivity.

Even in these uncertain times we’re busy planning the next Woodlands event for Devon Scouts as we know this is an incredibly popular event for us all which we missed out on in 2020. We’re covering all bases and at this stage can’t guarantee the format or length of the camp, but we can confirm that there will be a Woodlands 2021, so please keep in mind the date of Friday 17th – Sunday 19th September 2021.

We’ll keep you informed of our progress and look forward to welcoming you to Woodlands 2021!


4th January 2021

Following the announcement this evening from the Prime Minister enforcing a national lockdown we must now unfortunately return to a suspension of Face to Face Scouting across Devon. Rest assured we will keep you informed of any future changes to the readiness level. Please keep an eye on Facebook, Instagram and the Devon Scouts website for updates. In the meantime, please stay safe and look after each other.

We prepare young people with skills for life

We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. We help young people develop and improve key life skills. 

We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.

Join our #RaceRoundTheWorld

Join our #RaceRoundTheWorld: an epic, sponsored challenge to raise money for the Scout Groups hit hardest by COVID-19.

COVID-19 is the biggest crisis we’ve faced in a generation. Now, over 500 Scout groups – many of them based in communities that were already made vulnerable before the virus hit – are struggling to make ends meet. If they close their doors, thousands of young people will miss out on all the life-changing skills and experiences being a Scout can bring, precisely when they need us most.

We’re asking everyone – including young people and their families, volunteers, and former Scouts – to sign up and join one of four teams as we #RaceRoundTheWorld. The four teams are racing each other to see who can be the first to travel the 43,000 miles to get round the world. Everyone who takes part will be following our route at least once, though we’re encouraging everyone to take on as many miles as they can manage!
