What We Do

3rd Washington Scouts prepare young people with skills for life. We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more.

Each week we help over 200 young people aged 6 - 18 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.

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 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.

Young people first: safeguarding and safety in Scouting
