Skills for Life

Every week over 140 young people between the ages of 6-18 join us to experience the adventure that our quality scouting programme provides and create life long friendships.

Welcome to 1st Bernwood Forest

Based in Long Crendon, Dinton and part of the Chiltern Vale District, 1st Bernwood Forest Scouting group is one of the largest groups in the area.

It is exciting to be involved with us. We believe in young people enriching their lives through new experiences and challenges and partake in regular meetings, camping trips and day activities.
