Welcome to Pennine Calder Scout District

The Scout Association has been providing fun, challenge and adventure for young people for over 100 years.

As the largest district in West Yorkshire County Scouts, Pennine Calder Scout District covers the Elland, Sowerby Bridge, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden areas of Calderdale. The district is made up of 11 Scout Groups and 7 Explorer Scout Units, offering Scouting to 6-18 year olds  If you’re older than 18, we have Scout Network and are always looking for volunteer adults!

We have an extensive and enthusiastic team of leaders across the District, constantly working hard to make Scouting activities accessible to all who want to participate.  We run challenging programmes across the District to promote the development of young people in line with the Aims of Scouting.
