About our Scout Group

Every week 3rd Macclesfield Upton Priory Scout Group supports over 120 young people, from 6 to 18 year olds, in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to the local community and wider society.

Scouting gives children more confidence, responsibility, a broader set of friends, a chance to pursue things they might not get to do otherwise, adventure and an extended family.

No matter if you are a parent, young person or interested in volunteering to help our group we’re pleased to welcome you to our Scout Group. Take time to explore, learn more about what we do to help our members learn, have fun and grow.
