Yarnton Scout Group provides young people between the ages of 6 and 25 the chance to grow and develop through new experiences and adventure. Scouting provides a chance to develop skills for life; from learning to cook, coding, first aid, problem solving, leadership, teamwork, independence, resilience and initiative.
And through all this young people get the chance to develop new friendships and work with their peers to steer the activities and the Group through youth involvement.
Some of the activities that are offered include; camping, outdoor cooking, knotting, community based projects (litter picking, helping at local care home), environmental projects (providing bird and bug homes, clearing out ditches), water activities (kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving), trying new sports and learning about beliefs both our own and others.
Scouting is open to everyone - girls & boys and anyone of any religious belief.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
