About Us

Welcome to 1st Thirsk Scout Group. We are a lively group based in the heart of Thirsk committed to  having fun and creating new experiences for 6 - 14 year olds.  


We believe all young people have the right to an adventure. This could be a Beaver Scout spending their first night away from home or a Scout going on their first international expedition, but adventure is at the heart of what we do.


From abseiling down a cliff to zorbing on a lake and lighting a fire to paddling on the beach – Scouting is all about everyday adventure. Our members participate in some of the most varied activities imaginable; all while having fun and learning how to get the most out of life.


Every section has different activities; and meets at different times. There’s always something different, exciting and new going on. As part of a movement with over 30 million members worldwide the opportunities are almost endless.


We change lives by offering 6 to 14 year olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
