Skills for Life

By 2025 we will have prepared more young people with skills for life, supported by amazing leaders delivering an inspiring programme.

We will be growing, more inclusive, shaped by young people and making a bigger impact in our communities.

Welcome to 1st Shiremoor

First established on the 23rd March 1950, 1st Shiremoor Scout Group is a popular and 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.

Do more. Share more. Be more.

We encourage our young people to take that leap, make that jump, get up and carry on regardless. From map reading to crate stacking, it’s all about having the confidence to give it a go.
