Skills for Life

Welcome to Wetherby District

Wetherby District is a thriving rural district that is one of 8 that make up Central Yorkshire Scout County.

It has 14 groups, 3 of which contain 2 sections of beavers, cubs and scouts.

It also has 7 explorer units, and a Young Leader Unit that cater for the age range 14 to 18. There is also a Youth Team led by our Youth Commissioner.

More recently a Network unit has been established those aged between 18 and 25 to allow them to continue their own scouting career even if they are a leader.

The District Team meet regularly to discuss the running of the District and its events and the District Executive meet to discuss business matters.

Adult volunteers

The Scouts award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouts as young people.
