Skills for Life

The area covered by Moors & Coastal District Scouts in Somerset broadly follows administrative districts of Sedgemoor and West Somerset.

Welcome to Moors & Coastal District

We have 11 Beaver Colonies, 16 Cub Packs, 12 Scout Troops, 4 Explorer Units, a Network section and a Scout Active Support (SAS) section. Please see the pages of the individual sections for details of that section.

We are the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6 to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
