Welcome to 1st Shiremoor Scouts

1st Shiremoor Scouts is open to boys and girls aged between 10 1/2 and 14.

We aim to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.


We meet at Holystone Primary School on Monday nights 7:15pm - 9:00m within easy reach of Holystone, Shiremoor and Backworth.

Currently we have 26 Scouts and we try to get to know them all as individual characters. Our Scouts swill always receive credit for trying activities whatever their ability.


To find out more about Cubs in general and the badges that can be earned please see the following link from the Scout Assosiation website http://members.scouts.org.uk/supportresources/search?cat=7


Scouting is reliant on volunteers so we are always keen to meet adults who would like to help us develop our young people in any of our Scouting sections.

The Scout Programme

Fun, fun, fun!


Enjoyed the great outdoors playing a variety of wide games.  Indoors leaders got the Scouts thinking during a cranium challenge evening; practising their knots and lashings with pioneering activities; brought in others to teach new skills from circus skills to karate and occasionally they hand over the sessions to the scouts to plan and run in their patrols.


Visited the Dove Marine Laboratory in Cullercoats, the Life Boat Centre at North Shields and Newcastle's Victoria Tunnel.


Spent time camping including conservation weekend at Cragside, paddlesports weekend at Hawkhirst and team builidng camp at Dilston.


Plus much, much more.
