Durham City District

Welcome to Durham City District Scouts!

Scouting has a long history in Durham City and today over 500 members take part in an exciting and adventurous programme every day of the week. Scouting in Durham City is delivered by 7 Scout groups and two Explorer Scout units supported by a District Team.

From climbing to mountain biking, learning life skills to the creative arts, there is definitely something for you!

The District has experienced growth in numbers over the last few years and in 2013 it recorded a 15% increase in overall numbers. This growth and demand for Scouting has led the District to formulate a challenging development plan to guide the development of the District over the coming years.
