As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life.
We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
Each week, we give over 460,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.
We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
Blyth Valley Scout District covers the south east corner of Northumberland, being one of 10 Districts within the County. The district as it is known today was formed on 1st April 2000 with the merger of Blyth District, Seaton Valley District and the 1st Seaton Sluice Scout Group from the Whitley Bay District. The District still thrives to this day, providing Everyday Adventure for over 500 young people across our area, which is only made possible by our 100+ strong dedicated volunteers.
Within Blyth Valley there are 11 Scout Groups, of which 10 are made up of a Beaver Scout Colony (age 6-8), a Cub Scout Pack (age 8-10½) and a Scout Troop (age 10½-14). Within the District we also have three Explorer Scout Units for the 14-18 age range and a Network Scout Unit for 18-25 year olds.
We cover and provide scouting within Blyth and Cramlington, being our largest towns, along with Seaton Delaval, Seaton Sluice and Seghill. Group meetings are held on all week nights to ensure that there is always an available meeting to join. Week night sessions are supplemented by many varied weekend activities ranging from visits, camping and other outdoor activities.
