Who are the 5th North Devon Scout Group?

We operate from our Scout HQ situated at the base of Codden Hill in Bishops Tawton and draw young people from Landkey, Swimbridge, Newport, Whiddon Valley, Bishops Tawton, Bratton Fleming and the surrounding areas.

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart.

Through the everyday adventure of Scouting, young people and adult volunteers regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives.

Scouting helps our young improve their key skills, including social skills, teamwork ability, leadership ability and confidence. Our volunteers also enjoy the benefits of Scouting by learning new skills, making new friends and enjoying a social life with a purpose. There are hundreds of different volunteer roles on offer, from management positions, running activities to behind the scenes roles like driving the minibus or painting and decorating.

Our varied and exciting programme offers hundreds of activities, from camping and hiking to climbing and rafting. Young people can also achieve their badges in such diverse subjects as PR, electronics and entertainment.

Scouting is a unique adventure that’s full of surprises. Join in and see for yourself.

How to find us:

Take the A377 New Road through Bishops Tawton. As you get to the end of the village you will see Bishops Tawton Service Station on the right hand side. Take the left turn directly opposite the Service Station. You will see an immediate left turn which is a rough track.

Our Scout HQ is up this rough track on the right hand side.
