Scouting in Whitby goes back to 1913 when a man by the name of Dr. Oldfield brought Scouting to Whitby. He was part of Lord Baden-Powell's original Scout Troop in England. The first troop was started in 1913 by Rev. Allen of All Saints Anglican Church with Mr. Sid Gibson as Scout Master.

Two years later in 1915, Scouting came to a stop because of World War I. Scouting did not return until 1921, when the 1st Whitby Scout Group was originally organized on January 8, 1921 with a charter being granted on February 11, 1921. Our charter number is No.3.
