Who we are

Welcome to 1st Hensingham Scout Group!Scout_Clip-n-Climb_IMGP8336.png

We've been bringing the Scouting adventure to Hensingham and the surrounding areas of Whitehaven for over 6 decades!  We started in 1949 and ever since fun and adventure have been at the heart of everything we do.  Whether we're trying out a new adventurous activity such as kayaking or climbing, or learning new skills like CPR or map reading - we've been having a blast and helping our members to get the most out of life!

We're a fairly large Group with around 100 young members.  Our leadership team run 2 Beaver Colonies, 2 Cub Packs and 2 Scout Troops meeting over four nights of the week - it's fair to say we're a busy bunch!  

We're part of the Western Lakes Scout District and Cumbria Scout County.  Although the majority of our members come from within Whitehaven, we welcome everyone, children and adults alike, to join in the fun and adventures of Scouting - it doesn't matter if you live 30 seconds round the corner or 30 minutes across the fells!
