Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential.
Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment.
We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
In our Group we have 4 sections, open to both girls and boys with an age range from 6 to 18 years old. For more information, please click on the section opposite.
Our Scout HQ, is based in the village of Marldon.
Please see below for directions
If your child would like to join 1st Marldon Scout Group welcomes boys and girls to begin their scouting adventure in Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
When can my child join Scouting?
The starting age for Beavers is usually 6, subject to waiting list. Looking ahead, children can join Cubs from around the age of 8 and Scouts from 10 to 14. Following on from Scouts, 14 year olds can become Explorer Scouts up to the age of 18.
How much does it cost?
Subscription fees are currently £15 per child per month payable at the beginning of each month. In addition to the subscription fee we may organise events, trips and camps which incur additional fees. We always keep costs to an absolute minimum. All our leaders and helpers are unpaid volunteers.

Is there a waiting list?
Due to a shortage of volunteers there are currently many young people in our area waiting to join Beavers and Cubs. It is very difficult to offer guidance on the length of wait as it varies greatly. If your child is offered a Beavers or Cubs place at another Group we would urge you accept it rather than your child miss out on this valuable experience.
Become a volunteer…
We are ALWAYS keen to hear from anyone who can volunteer some time to help 1st Marldon. Without the support of our (unpaid) volunteers of leaders, assistant leaders, parent helpers and committee members we simply would not be able to run the Group. You do not need to have a child to volunteer!
