Scouts around a fire

Welcome to

Hastings, Rye & District

Hastings, Rye & District is in East Sussex on South coast of England and is part of the National UK Scout Association. Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 400,000 young people aged 4-25 in the UK. We believe in helping our Members fulfil their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves. Through the adventure of Scouting, young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility. We give young people experiences they’ll never forget.
