Skills for Life

Over 4,000 members aged between 6 and 25 are taking part in the fun, challenge and adventure of Scouting in Somerset every day! 1,000 adult volunteers across our County help our youth members to shape their own adventure.

Welcome to Somerset Scouts

Somerset Scouting offers fun, challenge and adventure to over 4,000 members aged between 6 and 25.

We enable young people from every background to enjoy new activities; experience the outdoors; make friends; develop skills; gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

1,000 adult volunteers across Somerset help our youth members to shape their own adventure by working in teams, thinking for themselves and learning through participation.

Adult volunteers

The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
