Scout Counties (The Scout Association)
A Scout County (also Scout Area) is an administrative division within The Scout Association of the United Kingdom. There are currently 115 Counties and Areas in the United Kingdom. These bodies are responsible for providing programmes and support for their member Scout Districts.
Counties are led by a County Commissioner (who is appointed by the Chief Scout), who is supported by a team of Assistant County Commissioners and an Executive Committee.
Counties are themselves divided into Districts. The average County will have around 10 Districts, and around 3,900 members (of which 3,150 are under 18).
