Welcome to the 1st Yetminster Scout Group

1st Yetminster Scout Group has been running since the early 1930’s, over the years it has moved home several times but has for the past 31 years been based in its own scout hut near to Sussex Farm Way in Yetminster.

We are a well-established Group comprising of young people from the age of six to fourteen.  Currently the Group consists of:

  • One Beaver Colony, 6 to 8 years of age
  • One Cub Pack, 8 to 10 ½ years of age
  • One Scout Troop, 10 ½ to 14 years of age

We are a regularly active and popular Scout Group and are plan is to expand the size of our Sections offering the benefits of Scouting to more young people in the Community.  We meet weekly during school term time and the sessions are run by a dedicated team of adult volunteers.

Did you know that 11 of the 12 people to have walked on the Moon were once Scouts!

Scouting makes a positive contribution to society by helping young people develop as active members of the Community. Scouts become self-reliant, responsible, and caring individuals who show commitment to themselves and to others. Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It is a safe place where they can aspire and grow and learn many life skills.

The Chief Scout Bear Grylls quoted,

“So much of who we are as an adult is formed when we are kids.  What Scouting says to people is: It’s ok to go for it in life!”
