Welcome to 1st Porthmadog Scouts Website.
Our Group is based in the Town of Porthmadog.
Porthmadog is a harbour town situated on the Glaslyn Estuary located on the North West side of Wales.
Porthmadog is rich in Maritime history. The town was named after W. A. Maddocks whose ambitious "Cob" embankment scheme led to the town's name, which translates as "Madog's Port".

Every one in scouting are volunteers.

We need you.

Our award-winning training scheme for volunteers means that adults get as much from Scouting as our young people.


Scouting’s quality depends on its volunteers and our volunteers depend on Scouting to teach them the skills they need.
