Welcome to 1st Hensingham Scout Group!

Living the Adventure in Whitehaven since 1949.

We're one of the largest and most active Scout Groups in West Cumbria; every week over 100 young people aged 6-14 from Whitehaven and the surrounding area join us to experience everyday adventure and take part in our top quality Scouting programme. 

If you're new to our Group, welcome, please have a look around the website and see the kind of things we get up to and find out how to join us!  If you're already a member we hope you'll find the site a useful resource to keep up to date with all the latest news and info about what's going on.

We'd like to say a huge thank you to Keith & Trish at Buzy Bee Software Services for all their help in keeping the site up and running.  If you have any ideas for how we can improve it, or any other comments or feedback, please let us know. See the Contact Us page for more details of how to get in touch.
