Who we are

Our Scout Group is the 17th Stretford (1st Lostock) QUEST Scout Group. We currently offer scouting experiences and activities to over 100 different boys and girls in the Stretford area. We challenge young people and adults to stretch themselves, discover new talents and reach their potential

Our approach is informal, youth-led and sociable; Scouting is an enjoyable hobby and a social life with a purpose. Scouting helps young people and adults get to know new people, work well together and develop positive, meaningful friendships.
