Join HLS Scouts

Do more, share more, be more

Welcome to the new website for Houghton-Le-Spring scouts. If you can't find what you're looking for, please visit our old site at archive.hls-scouts.org.uk. Email web@hls-scouts.org.uk to give us feedback on our new site.

Be a Scout

Please complete our join form to add your young person to our waiting list.

You'll automatically receive a copy of the details you've submitted and some further useful info about scouting. Please check the details you are entering carefully as our membership system automatically chooses which section list a young person should go onto.

Unfortunately there are waiting lists for our beaver and cub sections and our waiting list page allows you to track where a young person is on our list and explains how we manage our waiting lists.

We will also ask you if we can contact you about becoming an adult volunteer, with more adult support we can make more places available for young people.

Become a Volunteer

All of the scout groups and explorer units across Houghton-Le-Spring are voluntary organisations and rely on volunteers to deliver scouting to young people as well as to support and manage the group.

We have a wide range of volunteer opportunities, from directly supporting young people to providing behind the scenes advice. We're after volunteers to look after our equipment, manage our waiting list and support our events too, please take some time to have a look at our opportunities.
