1st Marown Scout Group (updated January 2020)

Each week, several hundred boys, girls and young adults on the Isle of Man go Scouting (including Beavers, and Cubs).  Today, there are an estimated 58 million scouts in 216 countries and territories around the world.  Scouting is the world’s biggest youth organisation.

The aim of Scouting is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

The method of achieving the aim is through the provision of exciting and adventurous activities with progressive training based on the Scout promise and law guided by adult Leadership.

The programme is a seamless progression of training, activities and awards (as well as fun and games) for young people aged 6 right up to 25. The programme aims to help young people to grow in a number of personal development areas to ensure the young people themselves really are ‘learning by doing’.

The ideals of scouting are very high and in the 1st Marown Scout Group we are constantly striving to improve what we offer.  If you are interested in joining one of the groups, please use the contacts below.

At the start of 2020 they had a night hike from the Eyreton Road up onto the side of Slieu Ruy.  Badges currently being work on include the Biosphere Badge, the Forester Activity Badge and the Navigator Badge.
