Scout Active Support allows people to give their time to Scouting on a flexible basis. People can still be involved in Scouting without the full-time commitment of being a leader and there is no requirement to have been involved in Scouting before joining. All that is required is a willingness to volunteer some time to support Scouting.

Pybus Scout Active Support Unit

The Pybus Active Support unit provides support and services to our campsite, Pybus. With a wide range of skills and experience the members of this unit can often be found turning their hands to everything from cleaning to welding and bricklaying. Over the past few years the members of this unit have worked tirelessly to transform Pybus into the campsite you see today and without their support none of it would have been possible.
