Helsingin Siniset is a boy scout troop established as early as 1917. The troop was founded by the then Secretary-General of the YMCA, who brought scouting to Finland, Reverend Verneri Louhivuori. Our troop has a very long and colourful history that is still being written to this day. We are the troop of Helsinki YMCA and our activities are not only aimed at young people, but also designed and implemented by them. In addition to wilderness skills, we also diligently explore the more urban skills and corners of our hometown.


The Rastipartio of YMCA is a scout troop from East Helsinki, based in Rastila, Vuosaari. Through the actions of the Rastipartio, you can experience the best bits of scouting. Together we work both in the city, as well as in the forest. In Rastipartio (Rapa among friends) you’ll definitely get to laugh, scream, sweat and enjoy adventures. The Rastipartio has over 100 members and includes girls and boys alike.
