Wyre Scouts

The District (which is part of the Scout County of West Lancashire) is made up of 11 Scout Groups, A Young Leaders Unit, 4 Explorer Scout Units and a Scout Network Unit.

Our Origins

On 1 August 1907, 20 boys gathered together to join the first experimental Scout camp on Brownsea Island, near Poole in Dorset. The man behind the event was Robert Baden-Powell, a soldier, artist and writer. In bringing young people from different backgrounds together, he hoped to bridge gaps in society, and give everyone the opportunity to learn new skills. It was a radical idea at the time, but it paved the way for what was to come.
