YHA Membership and Benefits


The YHA and The Scout Association have a partnership that means members of The Scout Association will pay special prices when they stay as a group and discounted prices when they stay as individuals. The benefits listed only apply to YHA England and Wales but can be accessed by all members of The Scout Association.


For members of The Scout Association to receive a membership discount of £3 per person per night (£1.50 for under 18’s) when travelling independently of a group or in parties of 15 or less people, each person must hold their own YHA membership.

If travelling in parties of less than 16 people, the promotional code, Scout-001, will give members of The Scout Association a 10% discount on accommodation.

Camping Benefits

The YHA provide camping at any of their campsites or camping barns at a special price of £5 per person per night – unfortunately they are unable to offer further Group or Individual discount from this special price.  You can find information about hostels that have camping facilities at:


and their camping barns here:


As a camper at one of the YHA sites, you’ll either have your own dedicated facilities or be able to make use of the hostels. Whether that's cooking up a storm in a self-catering kitchen or just freshening up after your night under the stars, you'll feel every bit as welcomed as the hostel guests.
