Welcome to the Wansdyke Scouts website. We are just one part of the 32 million+ people who belong to the worldwide Scout Movement.

Our area covers North-East Somerset and every night of the week, somewhere in Wansdyke, young people will be given the chance to experience challenge and adventure, friendship and teamwork, whilst having fun in a safe environment with trained volunteer leaders.

We love to 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 Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, or another admin/fundraising role.  Our aim is to make Scouting just as much fun for our adult volunteers as it is for our young people.

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