Want to join the Scouts in Swindon? Here’s how!

Scouting is really popular throughout much of Swindon at the moment, so we’ve got a waiting list in place for most ages in many areas. You’ll hear back from us as soon as we can offer your child a space – apologies if this takes some time before we have space.

The whole family can enjoy being a part of Scouting – we love it when parents get involved and join our team. No prior experience is needed – just enthusiasm and a smile – and full training is provided. We hope you will help us deliver amazing experiences for young people in Swindon!

Just choose your closest location below to get in touch with us and find out how you can be part of the Scouting adventure. We can’t wait to hear from you.
