Skills for Life

It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through everyday adventure, young people regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet lifelong friends through Scouting.

Welcome to 1st Parkstone

Based in Parkstone and part of the Poole Scout District, we are one of the first scouting groups in the world, being formed in 1908.The current group is an Air Scout Group and one of the most active Scout Groups in Poole; every week over 65 young people aged 6-14 from Parkstone and the surrounding area join us to experience everyday adventure and take part in our top quality Scouting programme.

The Group has grown steadily in all Sections over the last three years, following the efforts and hard work of our Leadership team, fully supportive Group Exec and our Section Leaders.

Our thriving and active Scout Group has a dedicated leadership team who produce exciting and dynamic programs for young people of the area, teaching life skills as well as having plenty of fun along the way! We partake in regular meetings, camping trips and day activities.
