the Return to Face to face scouting

Since Easter the return to Face to Face Scouting has been amazing, we've welcomed new members, tried new activities and been on our first outing since the pandemic began.

Well done to everyone involved. We cant wait to see whats instore for the next half term!


Scouts have launched #GoodForYou, a campaign designed to recruit over 5,000 volunteers.

You can find out more at Scouts.org.uk or watch the video from the Chief Scout, Bear Grylls:

We rely on people like you playing their part to give young people the opportunities they need.

We've updated our website to make it easier to get an idea of what volunteer roles are available within the group, alongside making it easier to get in contact.

Please see 1stburnmoor.co.uk/join for more information.


Looking ahead as the vaccine begins to role out were hoping 2021 we will be able to resume nights away, this will all be subject to the readiness level at the time but all being well we have the following camps penciled in:

  • 21-28th of August 2021 - Summer Camp for Scouts
  • Durham2020 - although originally postponed to 2022 County have made the difficult decision to cancel the event, we'd like to express our thanks to everyone involved, a tremendous effort went into the event.

As well as these events there'll also be sleepovers for all sections and other fantastic county events to look forward to.
