Skills for Life

Young people in the Scouts take part in an exciting programme of activities from kayaking to coding. They develop character skills like resilience, initiative and tenacity; employability skills such as leadership, teamwork and problem solving; and practical skills like cooking and first aid. And research proves it really works. A 2018 report says Scouts are 17% more likely to show leadership skills and work well in teams. They’re a third more likely to support their communities too.

Wansdyke Scouts

Welcome to the Wansdyke District Scout web site. We are just one part of the 32 million plus people who belong to the worldwide Scout Movement. Our area covers Bath and North East Somerset (minus Bath) and every night of the week, somewhere in Wansdyke, Scouting will be happening and giving young people the chance to experience challenge and adventure, friendship and teamwork and more importantly having fun in a safe environment with trained volunteer adult leaders.

We always welcome new adults to scouting in many different ways from a pack assistant to a section leader or on our group and district executive committees as Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, and various other admin and fund raising roles.  Our aim is to make scouting just as much fun for our adult volunteers as we do for our young people.

Please tour our pages and see what young people can experience through the balanced Scouting Programme.  Young or old, we’re waiting to hear from you.

District Commissioner
