Skills for Life

1st Shiremoor Scout Group is a popular and thriving Scout Group with 60 young people enjoying the fun and adventure that Scouting brings; supported by a dedicated group of adult volunteers and young leaders that are committed to giving the young people skills for life.

Welcome to 1st Shiremoor

As a group we were established on the 23rd March 1950 and are celebrating our 70th anniversary in 2020. As of now we are thriving scout group with over sixty young people enjoying the fun and adventure that Scouting brings.

We aim to give young people ranging from six to fourteen years of age the opportunity to build skills for life through our section programmes. We offer new and challenging experiences designed to push the young people out of their comfort zones so they can truly learn and develop whilst also making long lasting friendships. Our programmes are designed around the young people’s interests and needs in order to ensure they are fun and engaging so they can get the best out of scouting, potentially leading to the top awards.

We are an extremely popular group and our numbers are constantly increasing so if you have a young child interested in joining, we encourage you to add them to our waiting list early to ensure they get a place.
