1st Sid Vale Scout Group, Sidmouth, was founded in 1913. We provide a local resource supported entirely by volunteers, to enable young people from the ages of 6 – 18 years to enjoy adventurous activities such as: camping, archery, climbing, hiking, cooking, life skills, working toward badges and team events. We continue to encourage all our youngsters to take an active part in their community.

Our Scouting Sections

8 to 10 and a half

10 and a half to 14

All our Sections are open to boys and girls and meet weekly in term time. Our Explorer Scouts are also Young Leaders, who help support the younger sections. 

Volunteer with 1st Sid Vale

There are so many opportunities to get involved with Scouting at 1st Sid Vale. We have a growing team you can be part of.

Be part of the team, doing the things you love, and why not even try something new?


Scouting encourages young people to never give up, face their fears, take the initiative and work as a team. Through fun and adventures, they gain character, employability and practical skills.

Help young people develop skills for life.
