We were founded in 1945 and originally based in a building in Pitchcroft. We are now in a unique position with fantastic facilities including a new £100K renovated riverside bank and disable access pontoons.
We are part of the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
