Welcome to the new website of 4th Washington Scouts. 4th Washington Scouts is a new group opening in the South West of Washington in Spring 2013.

The group will provide adventure for young people aged 6 to 8 when it opens it's beaver colony and has a development plan to open cub and scout sections over the next 3 years.

The group will be part of Houghton-Le-Spring District and is the result of an ambitious development plan to grow scouting in the area. The plan has seen the district grow year on year for the past 10 years, and now over 700 young people and adults enjoy scouting in the district.

Volunteers are vital to scouting and it's as a result of new volunteers giving up their time to scouting that we are able to open a new provision in the south west of Washington. Our volunteers not only give up their time to run programmes for young people but support the management of our groups. Even if you can only spare a couple of hours a week, you can help make scouting happen for young people in Houghton-Le-Spring district. You can find out more about volunteering at

The aim of 4th Washington is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
