About Us

We’re Preparing Young People With Skills For Life

Whitley Bay and District Scouts is part of UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation and a member of the Worldwide Scout Movement.

We change lives by helping 6- to 25-year-olds develop the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.

Scouting actively engages and supports young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

As Scouts we are guided by our values:

  • Care: We support others and take care of the world in which we live.
  • Respect: We have self-respect and respect for others.
  • Integrity: We act with integrity; we are honest, trustworthy and loyal.
  • Cooperation: We make a positive difference; we cooperate with others and make friends.
  • Belief: We explore our faiths, beliefs and attitudes.
