Welcome to British Scouts Madrid Home Web Page.
On this site you will be able to find information about our activities, where we meet, what we do and how to get involved.
1st Madrid British Scouts (est. 2010) is based in Spain’s capital city, Madrid. The group is affiliated with and under the banner of the UK Scouting Association however we nevertheless bring an international flavor to our groups due to the cosmopolitan nature and different nationalities we embrace.
The Scout Group includes Scouts, Cubs and Beavers. Between them they cover boys and girls from ages 6 to 14. Our objective is to educate, enrich and entertain in a mixture of formal, informal, challenging or just plain fun situations.
All our indoor meetings usually take place at St. George’s International School in the San Chinarro district of Madrid one Saturday a month.
Here is an example of how our youth programme takes shape at our 2015 summer camp:
1st British Madrid Group will be taking part of this years Jamboree on the Air (JOTA) and Jamboree on the Internet (JOTI).
JOTA-JOTI is the largest Scouting event in the world. In 2014 over 1.3 million Scouts participated across 157 countries. The event is held the third weekend of October; for 2015 the Jamboree takes place on 16th, 17th and 18th October.
Here is another example of how our scouts share experiences with the 62nd Bristol Scouts:
We have just received the poster about the Poacher 2017 International Jamboree. It will be its 40th anniversary so for the first time, BSO Area is proposing to send a contingent of Scouts/Explorers to the hugely popular, one-week Poacher International Jamboree during the summer of 2017.
