26th Southampton (Swaythling) Scouts

Welcome to 26th Southampton (Swaythling) Scout Group. 

Since 1938 we've been scouting in Swaythling and now every week we provide activities to over 80 young people, preparing them with important life skills as well as fantastic opportunities. We're a friendly bunch and always keen to meet new people interested in scouting. Whatever your age, whether you want to volunteer or join one of our sections everyone is welcome.
