We are a thriving Scout Group with around 75 young members, a strong leadership team and executive committee about 2 miles south of Oxford.

  • Beavers meet on Tuesdays (Mary Rose)
  • Cubs meet on Wednesdays (Adventure)  or Thursdays (Endeavour)
  • Scouts meet on Mondays (Warrior)

For enquiries please use our primary email address:  kenningtonscouts@gmail.com.

Our headquarters can be found at

Otters Reach

We are tentatively taking bookings to hire our HQ.  Please understand that there are still covid restrictions imposed by the Scout Association which we adhere to. 

Non-scouting groups also use our HQ – eg karate and pilates, and it is normally available for parties, camps, and other events.  We have a large site, with its own secure parking and garden.  Inside there is a large room, 4 small side rooms, 1 medium room (all carpetted), a reasonably well equipped kitchen (large fridge freezer, large cooker, two sinks etc) and a couple of bathrooms (including all-access toilet).  We are 15min bus ride from the centre of Oxford, or a pleasant 45min walk mostly along the River Thames tow-path.

In consideration of our neighbours all private hire (non-Scouting) must end by 10pm.
