About Us

Every year we help 5,000 young people enjoy new adventures; to experience the outdoors; interact with others, gain confidence and have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Working alongside our youth members are thousands of adult volunteers, with a huge variety of roles and opportunities available.

Everyday Adventure

We're made up of 14 Districts, which consist of over 100 Scout Groups that run Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer Scouts on a  weekly or flexible basis. Each District and Scout Group have volunteers that help run the sections but also make up support teams and Executive Committee's.

What we do

Durham Scouts is responsible for supporting all the Districts, Scout Groups, Volunteers and Young People across the County. We do this by:

  • Organising a programme of adult training, so our volunteers can gain essential skills.
  • Provide advice and support to anyone who needs it, through our ACCs and Activity Teams.
  • Put together a programme of events that enhances the weekly programme.
  • Run the Moor House Adventure Centre, that provides activities and a Scout Shop with all the essentials.
