3rd Codnor is an active Scout group based in Codnor, Derbyshire with over 20 young people in our Beaver, Cub and Scout sections.

We meet at our Scout hut and outdoor locations every week during school terms, and run many camps and other activities throughout the year.

If you’re an experienced assistant leader looking for a new Group, or someone completely new to Scouting who wants to make a positive difference to young people we’d love to hear from you.
