Skills for Life

Scouting in East Somerset District is thriving, making an enormous difference to the lives of literally hundreds of young people, volunteers and our wider community.

Welcome to East Somerset

Fun and adventure can be found in our Scout Groups up and down our District from Yeovil to Frome and from Langport to Templecombe. Click on the link to find out more about Scouting in East Somerset.

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.

Adult volunteers

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