About us

A big welcome to all who are considering joining 3rd Croydon Scout Group! Scouting life is full of fun and adventure and we are sure you will have many wonderful experiences. Scouting is all about learning and personal development in a fun, challenging and supportive environment.

As a Scout, you will make lots of new friends, learn some great skills and have experiences that will stay with you for life. 3rd Croydon is an active and vibrant group. Formed in 1958 the group has all Scouting sections represented. The Scout year follows the school term structure and our sections meet at the Scout Hall corner Birdwood Road & Lusher Road, Croydon. Meetings are at the following times unless otherwise advised by the leaders.

Parents and Caregivers

Parents/Carers are encouraged to get involved in their children’s Scouting experience as they progress from section to section. We recognise that individual circumstances vary with work and family commitments.

Adult involvement with Scouting is on a completely voluntary basis. It will take as much time as you wish to put in. For some this is very little time and effort, for others it can become a passionate interest which may see you one day putting on a blue uniform shirt and joining us as a Leader! We recommend that new parents/carers obtain a Working with Children Card (volunteer), which is required for any person over 18 years of age transporting, assisting with activities away from the hall including camps.


Here's where you will find all the documents you will need from membership forms, pack lists to forms needed for outside the hall activities.


Fundraising is an important part of our scouting community. Through fundraising we are able to purchase new equipment that can be used by all. It also allows us to be able to provide a varied program to our youth. All our fundraising is done by our 3rd Croydon families volunteering their time.

Hall Hire

Our hall has recently been renovated with new kitchen and bathroom facilities. We are also now wheelchair accessible.

Sorry, we've sold out of xmas trees for 2023!
