Activity Announcement!

Monday 8th January 2018

You said... 'We loved the Silent Disco! Please have it again next time!'

We did... More Silent Disco sessions with even more headsets!

Party the night away with your friends in our huge festival tent at our amazing UV Silent Discos! With three different channels of music to choose from, an amazing light show and UV paint all round, it's one of the highlights of our entertainment programme. This year we'll have separate sessions so all sections can take part in the fun!

Up for a new challenge?

Thursday 2nd November 2017

The Marra team are looking to recruit a team to manage and run our exchange activity for Pirate Marra 2018. The "Trading Post" at Wild West Marra was a huge success and we would like to repeat the activity with a fresh new Pirate look for 2018.

We are looking for a team leader and a team to prepare and operate the activity for the whole weekend including the decoration, purchase of items and promotion of the activity through the event.

You'll work as part of the wider staff team, an army of volunteers making fun, challenge and adventure happen for over 1700 young people. Although you'll be working during the day running the activity, you will be able to relax in the evening with a dedicated staff entertainment programme and downtime.

If your interested in this opportunity please contact michael.blewitt@northumberlandscouts.org.uk for further information.

Staff Bookings are open!

Tuesday 10th October 2017

The online booking portal for staff bookings is now offically open! We need a team of dedicated volunteers to help make the big Marra adventure happen for over 1700 young people. No matter what your skills or talents, we will have a role suitable for you. You'll have a fantastic time making the magic happen along with socialising, meeting new people and friends.

Although you'll be working during the day running activities, keeping our young people safe or looking after the site, you will be able to relax in the evening with a dedicated staff entertainment programme available.

Staff is a great option for anyone working towards DofE or the Queens Scout Award as it can be used as the residential element of the awards. The Marra team are more than happy to encourage and support young people with their awards whilst volunteering as staff.
