Scouting offers challenge and adventure to 400,000 young people and 100,000 adults across the UK. We believe in helping our Members fulfil their potential by working in teams, learning by doing and thinking for themselves. We give people of every background and ability the chance to stretch themselves, learn new skills and make life long friends.

Where we are

The Group meets in it's own Headquarters called Base 2000, which is located behind the Popley Fields Community Centre in Carpenters Down, Popley, Basingstoke. Base2000 Location map.

Although Basingstoke Air Scouts are based in Popley, we do cater for children from right across Basingstoke.
