Welcome to our District

Here you will find information about our District, County and Scouting in general.  We hope you will enjoy the site and very importantly, we hope you will contribute.

About Pontefract & Castleford District

We offer Scouting to young people aged 6 to 25 years old plus there are opportunities for young people of any age to work and support our programmes. We currently offer Scouting to around 500 people in 7 Groups, 2 Explorer Scout Units, the District Scout Network and our Active Support Unit.

We currently have Groups meeting in Pontefract, Castleford, Fryston, Normanton, Altofts and Ackworth but also have plans to move into Hemsworth and South Elmsall over the next couple of years. Could you help?
