What We Do
Beavers cubs and scouts work together3rd Washington Scouts (part of Houghton-Le-Spring Scout District) provides adventure for young people aged 6 to 18 in Washington, Tyne and Wear.

Two thriving beaver colonies, two cub packs, two scout troops and an explorer unit make up over 200 members, comprising of over 190 young people and a leader team of 40 adults.

The group is a registered charity and is managed by an active executive committee.


Whether it is a beaver scout experiencing a first night away from home, a cub scout reaching the very top of the climbing wall, or a scout having their first trip abroad, adventure is at the heart of what we do.

We believe that every child has the right to an adventure, and our adult volunteers strive to create opportunities for young people in Washington.
