Welcome to 1st Barnard Castle Scout Group. We are a co-educational group.
From reactions of parents Barnard Castle Group is something they want their children to join and they appreciate the facilities that the Group provides.
Many of our leaders are parents, ex-parents or in one case a grandparent of beavers, cubs and scouts. We have a progressive training scheme and the list of activities is very long with an emphasis on outdoors when possible. The scouts and cubs have several camps or hostel weekends and even the beavers regularly go on sleepovers .
The Headquarters is used every evening except Saturday for our weekly meetings. We are fortunate to have a purpose built HQ with well maintained equipment, minibuses and trailers. Watching the troop going to Summer camp is like an
army maneuvers with masses of gear and bodies.
If you would like to be involved in the Group please contact the Group Scout Leader Mark Fell.
We always need some support staff as members of the Group Executive
or helpers of the Quartermaster.
