Welcome to 1st Hensingham Scout Group!

We’ve been helping young people from Whitehaven and the surrounding area develop skills for life for over 70 years! 

We're one of the largest and most active Scout Groups in West Cumbria; approximately 100 young people aged 6-14 join us every week to take part in adventurous activities like climbing, camping and kayaking, learn new skills such as cooking, CPR and map reading, and develop their confidence and resilience ready for whatever life throws at them.


Thank you to our supporters & sponsors!

We're really grateful to these local business for providing services or grant funding to help us deliver an amazing programme to our young people.
