Birkenhead District Scouts


Birkenhead District covers Birkenhead and it's suburbs, spreading across to Thingwall in the west and down to Rock Ferry in the south. Birkenhead is an active district with a real focus on youth and adventure, which can be reflected  by our active inclusion of young people in important roles in the district. We aim to provide a balanced programme of adventure and personal development. 

Birkenhead district covers Arrowe Park, which was the site of the 1929 3rd World Scout Jamboree. Birkenhead has a rich history in scouting, laying our claim as having the oldest scout group and district in the world.
