Volunteer Week 2021

This past week we have been meeting just some of our amazing leaders from around the towns Scout Groups and some of the District Team.

Without them Scouting wouldn’t be available to our young people here in Darlington. We have a great set of adult volunteers around the district not just those shown below.

We have a large waiting list for young people to join our many groups around town, but we still need more leaders, if you want to become a leader then email us @ info@darlingtonscouts.org.uk

If we can get enough leaders we may be able to open new groups to accommodate the young people in Darlington on our waiting lists.

It was a no brainier that the leaders picked Camping 🏕 over Glamping but now on to the important bit, was it a Good Read or a Film, was the most popular crisp flavour yours?? answers below.


Snow is all around us well it isn’t……. Yet, but we are hoping there will be some this festive Season.

Do you want to BUILD A SNOW MAN!!!. 


Darlington Beavers, Cubs and Scouts have been challenged this year to build a snowman as a District Competition, if your a Beaver, Cub or Scout from a different district or country why not join @darlingtonscout with their #ScoutsBuildSnowmen this winter. Join us on twitter with a photo of your snowman wearing your Scout Group Necker and use the #ScoutsBuildSnowmen and the name of your group.

It would be great to see us trending on twitter.
