About

I am the Busy Scouter. Involved in Scouting through Cubs and Scouts, I have been a Beaver, Cub and Scout Leader and now hold the role of Group Scout Leader in a Scout Association group here in the UK. Don’t worry if you Scout in a different way or a different place – or even if you are interested in games and activities for your child or another group; you are very welcome here.

Besides this, I run several websites and love gathering ideas and collecting scouting-related books. Hopefully, some valuable ideas will be shared and perhaps updated here.

The Busy Scouter

When I am not Scouting (I am also a climbing and abseiling instructor, sit on the district and county executive committee and do a whole load of other ‘jobs’), I love to spend time with my family. My wife and I are blessed with four busy boys who love sports, the outdoors, and scouting. Fortunately, we have many trails and woodlands near our home, so cycling, walking, running, den building, and campfires often feature in our spare time!

Your feedback is essential, so please comment on articles and ideas that move you, good or bad – apart from spam, I am interested to see what you think and feel and what you would like to see here on the site.
