Did you know?
That right now Scouting offers fun and friendship, challenge and everyday adventure in Newcastle upon Tyne to over 1000 young people with over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing.
Each year we help 6-25 year olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities as part of a global movement that includes over 400,000 other young people in the UK alone!
More young people do adventurous activities as Scouts than with any other organisation, infact:
▪ The youngest person to walk to the South Pole was a Scout.
▪ Each year 20,000 Scouts take part in the fitness challenge badge (and achieve it!)
▪ Each year Scouts undertaking the Queen’s Scout Award walk the equivalent distance of once around the world.
▪ Each year Scouts spend over 2 million nights away from home doing adventurous activities.
