Delivering #SkillsForLife to over 270 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers
We are Dringhouses Scouts, based in the south of York, bringing fun and adventure to more than 270 young people between the ages of 4 and 18 years old. We are one of the largest of the 14 Scout Groups in the York Ebor District which supports more than 1000 Scouts.
The Group has been running for more than 50 years and we are incredibly grateful for all the support we receive from the local council, St Edward the Confessor Church and the local community as a whole.
We’re run entirely by volunteers who give their time in many different ways, from being leaders running the meetings and events, to supporting the Group as trustees, or just helping our occasionally. All our volunteers receive the training they need to fulfil their roles, giving up their own time for the benefit of our children and young people.
