Hello and welcome to the website of Carmarthenshire Scouts!

Helo a croeso i safle’r we Sgowtiaid Sir Gâr!

Scouting started in Carmarthenshire within six months of Baden Powell’s famous camp at Brownsea Island and our records show there were troops established in Carmarthen and Llanelli by early 1908. There are groups in many of our towns and villages and in recent years we have seen growth in the number of young people who have become members.

Carmarthenshire (in Welsh: Sir Gaerfyrddin or Sir Gâr) is in the south west of Wales and one of thirteen historic counties. Its three largest towns are Carmarthen, Llanelli and Ammanford. The county town and administrative centre of Carmarthenshire is Carmarthen and the most populous settlement is the area in and around the town of Llanelli. With its fertile land and agricultural produce, Carmarthenshire is known as the "Garden of Wales". A large proportion of the local population are Welsh speakers and it is common to hear the language throughout all sections of the community.

Please use the links on the left to find out about the different sections we have in the Area as well as a link to our campsite which is open for bookings! If you are an adult member of the Area, there is a link for you to register and log into the private area where we keep copies of local policies, minutes of meetings etc.

This is a County site and a number of our groups have their own websites.
