Who we are

We are Gateshead Scouts, part of the UK’s biggest mixed youth organisation.

We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and skills for life.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.


What’s on

There’s always a lot going on in Gateshead Scouts, from meetings for young people almost every day of the week to camps, activities and adventures every weekend!

These can be a Beaver’s first night away from home all the way up to an Explorer climbing to to top of their first mountains!

Contact us

If you want to get involved with Scouting as volunteer (have a look at our vacancies!) or gain skills for life as a Beaver, Cub, Scout or Explorer, or if you have any other questions about scouting in Gateshead, get in contact with us!
