VOLUNTEERS            PARENTS             SCOUTS


The 1st Madrid British Scouts is formed by a group of English speaking families. At the moment we have 3 active groups:

Beaver group with 10 members, Cub group with up to 14 members and the  Scout group that has increase the numbers of the members during the year from 3 members up to 10.

We have a base in Salamanca neighbourhood  for indoor activities, but spend as many meetings as possible on excursions and outdoors.

Got a question?

 1. When can my child join Scouting?

Beaver Scouts are aged from 6 to 8 years old and are the youngest section of the Scouting family. Their activities are based around making things, outdoor activities, singing, playing games, going out on visits, investigating nature, listening to stories, learning how to be safe and making new friends.
Cubs are aged from 8 to 10½ years old. Cubs take part in a wide range of activities designed to be interesting and challenging. A Cub Scout meeting consists of games and activities with plenty of time spent outdoors, with an emphasis on self-sufficiency, helping others and social skills.

Looking ahead, children can join Scouts from 10½ and Explorer Scouting starts at 14 and runs until Scouts are 18.

2. Who can join Scouting?

We accept children of nationalities as long as they are fluent in English, as all the meetings and activities are in English only. At least one parent needs to be a native speaker or have a very high level of English.

3. How much does membership cost?

15 euros initial joining fee to be paid on joining Beavers or Cubs. This covers the Handbook, scarf and administration costs. 100 euros annual fee (50 euros in 2 payments in October and February). The uniform (polo shirt and cap) is purchased separately from:
