If you like making friends and want to try new activities then scouts is for you.

Whether you’re cooking your food over an open fire, shooting the breeze in a sailing dinghy, or just having a good time with your mates, there’s always a new adventure ahead of you.

The scout section in Derwentside takes part in many activities. District activities include:
the swimming gala, 5-a-side competition, indoor games competition (table tennis, snooker etc.) and the Teasdale Trophy camping competition.

In addition each troop organises and runs its own programme of activities, such as skiing, survival skills, archery, first aid, sailing, go-karting, week long summer camps…… The list is endless, and because you help to decide the programme it can include almost any activity you want to do.

Scouts usually meet once a week as a “Troop” which is part of a Scout Group.
