Who We Are

We are 1st Old Malden (St John the Baptist) Scout Group, commonly referred to as 1st Old Malden or just 1OM.

We have been providing scouting activities for children and young people aged between 6 and 18 across Old Malden and the surrounding area since 1950. To learn more of our history click here.

We run an exciting weekly programme with the focus on outdoor adventure, whilst providing the opportunity to develop friendships and understanding of others in a fun, exciting and safe way.

We take part in Royal Kingston District events such as fun days, camps and sports competitions.

Our young people are involved in regional and national contests and several are also members of our local Scout and Guide Band.

The Group is sponsored by St. John’s Church, so is very much an integral part of the life and outreach of the parish.

We have a membership of over 100; We have two Beaver Colonies (Winnipeg and Yukon), two Cub packs (Cornwell and Kipling), a Scout Troop and and Explorer Scout Unit.

1st Old Malden Scout Group is a Registered Charity (No. 303761).
