Coast to coast

In June, 11 of our volunteers completed the Coast to Coast from Whitehaven to Roka to raise money for 1st Burnmoor. It was a challenging three-day cycle but together they all made it by supporting each other along the way.

In total £3680.50 was raised!!!

Well done to everyone who was involved!

Scarecrow trail

There is a Scarecrow trail around Burnmoor on 9th and 10th of September 2023. Bournmoor Scarecrow Trail | Facebook

This will be a great event for you and your family to take part in on either day. It starts at Burnmoor Cricket Club and Ends at our Scout Hall.

Summer Camp 2023

Our Scouts have had an amazing time at summer camp in the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District. Summer camp is the prime event in the Scouting calendar where Scouts really put their skills to the test.

Scouts enjoyed rock climbing, shooting, ghyll scrambling and so much more, but the best way to sum it up is from Summer Camp's best Scout herself:

Grace's Story: Summer Camp 2023

Well done everyone and thank you to everyone involved in running this fantastic event.

pre-loved uniforms

We have started to hold donated uniforms that people can have for free, for swaps or for a donation to the group.

If you have a uniform you no longer need please consider donating it, it could benefit another family and it's good for the environment.

Please remove all badges (and keep them for your blanket).


We've identified we need several new volunteers to help with section meetings, this may be helping run activities, preparing equipment or just making the juice.

If you think you can help please see 1stburnmoor.co.uk/join for more information.


Currently, we have the following camps and days out which will all be bookable via the Parent Portal:

  • 6-8th of October 2023 - Confido for Scouts
