Welcome to 1st Tadcaster Scout group

We are a thriving group based in Tadcaster and we are lucky enough to have lots of young people to fill 1 Squirrel, 2 Beaver, 2 Cub and 2 Scout meetings every week. The District Explorer section also meets at the Scout Hut once a week.

Every term is full of fantastic activities across all ages, some based at the Scout hut while learning new skills with leaders or visiting groups, sometimes when exploring further away on camps or trips to attractions near or far. You can also keep up with the latest activities by following us on facebook.

We have a busy waiting list of future members but you can add a name to the list from any age and we will contact you in the future when we have space available. You can join Scouting at any time, whatever age.

Have a look at the New Starters page for an introduction to what is required when starting out. If you have recently joined then have a look at the Parent Portal page to see how we keep you up to date with activities. Details of the current term’s programme and activities can all be found by logging into your Parent Portal on Online Scout Manager. You can also keep track of your child’s badge progress.

Tadcaster Scout group are proud to introduce our brand new Squirrel section.

We are one of the first groups in the country to start the new meetings which are open to 4 and 5 year olds as a fantastic introduction to the Scouting movement.

We currently have one meeting on a Friday but are hoping to expand this in the future so please do get in touch if you would like to be added to our waiting list and we will keep you informed.
