We believe that through adventure we challenge individuals so that they learn and experience new things that enrich their lives.
Our aim is to promote the development of our 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 of the Association is by providing an enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law, and guided by adult leadership.
The 32nd Greenock & District Scout Group was founded in 1915 and prides itself with having met continuously during two world wars, while many leaders were abroad on active service. The group has met weekly since serving the community of central Greenock and beyond.
The group in the modern era has a co-educational and diverse membership of over 140 young people, supported by an adult volunteer membership of almost 30.
The vast majority of our members reside within the Broomhill area of Inverclyde and attend either St Patrick’s or Whinhill Primary Schools. The group is proud to embrace our local schools and community partners.
Our Beavers (6 to 8 years), Cubs (8 to 10 years), Scouts (10 to 14 years) and Explorer Scouts (14 to 18 years), work tirelessly to serve our community and in turn endeavour to achieve the Chief Scout and Queen Scout awards. It is widely known in Scouting circles that the 32nd Group have produced 34 Queen Scouts over the past 9 years, more than any group in Scotland.
The group continues to grow year on year.
In 2016, following our centenary year, the group was honoured to receive from HM Queen, The Queens Award for Voluntary Service, the only Scout group in Scotland to receive this prestigious accolade, true testimony to the groups work (The QAVS is equivalent to a group MBE)
