There are six groups, an Explorer Scout Unit and a Scout Network within the District. Each group is different and offers a variety of opportunities for young people across Derwentside.

Scouting in Derwentside is very popular so many groups have waiting lists. Contact the group you're interested in and, if they do not currently have places available, they will add you to their waiting list or suggest contacting another group.

There are opportunities for groups to come together as a district for activities and nights away. This gives them the opportunity to meet other Scouts and take part in larger events and activities.

Similarly, there are opportunities for groups in the 14 districts that make up Durham County Scouts, to take part in large events and activities.
