Welcome to the 1st Somerton Scout Group website.

What is Scouting? ADVENTURE!

Scouting is a remarkable movement that brings amazing benefits and enjoyment to everyone involved – children, leaders, parents and everyone involved with the running of the group.

Through adventure, we help our scouts develop team-work skills, friendships, confidence, independence, responsibility and a ‘can do’ attitude to help prepare them for the wider world.

Everyone in our group takes part in many adventures & activities at weekly evening meetings, weekend activities in the term, and week-long summer camps (for the older sections). In a typical year, we will go climbing, caving, hiking, canoeing, abseiling, kayaking, swimming, fire-lighting, community visits, craft activities, raft building and many many more adventures.

Check out our Twitter page or our Facebook page @1stSomerton to see our latest adventures or the news section of this website.

Our group runs as follows

  • Beavers (6-8yrs)   Wednesday 17.00 – 18.15 
  • Cubs (8-10.5yrs)  Monday  18.30 – 20.00 and Wednesday 18.30 – 20.00
  • Scouts (10.5 – 14yrs) Tuesday 19.00 – 20.30 and Thursday 19.00 – 20.30
  • Explorers (14 – 18 yrs) Friday 19.30 – 21.00

Some people think Scouts is just for boys – it’s not – we have loads of girls too!

How much does it cost? NOT MUCH!

It costs £40 per term, which covers weekly meetings, insurance, membership etc. Camps cost extra, and the cost depends on the activities

Who runs Scouting? VOLUNTEERS!

Everyone in our group is a volunteer, which is why we can provide such great value activities. All our leaders have undergone extensive training and criminal records checks, and when we provide “adventurous activities” we will either use externally qualified people, or our own leaders with appropriate qualifications.
