Last Saturday 1st Madrid British Scout Troop held it’s second annual fundraising drive and raffle. There were three excellent prizes…
Are you one of the lucky winners?


1st prize: a Samsung Galaxy J7 mobile phone

More importantly, this effort helped to raise money for our growing troop to offset the cost of our activities so that more children may participate.

The winning ticket numbers are as follows:

 1st Prize – ticket number 165
2nd Prize – ticket number 183
3rd Prize – ticket number 1874


If you are a holder of one of the winning tickets, please send a scanned copy of the ticket clearly showing the ticket number along with your (street) mailing address to


We will then be in touch with you regarding the pick-up/distribution of the prize.

Thank you once again for your support of our troop!



Our current Scout troop is at full capacity (except for Explorers ages 14-18) for the current year of 2017-2018. We are therefore not accepting enquiries for any new children at this time. If your child is 14+ and interested in becoming an Explorer, please use the link below.

Poacher 2017

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.


Also, you can have a look at their website  for some more information:

Helping your kids to get badges

At the last AGM, parents were informed by the leaders  how to help their kids to get some badges. Read the requirements to get the badge and if there is a way to show the scout fulfils those requirements, the leaders will give the activity badge without testing the scout. For instance, if the scout goes to swimming classes, a simple note from their teachers reporting their skills, it will be enough to prove to the leader that they deserve the badge.

Good luck!!



New Programme 2016

For the next season we have a new programme and new badges. Here are the links where you can find out what is new for each section:
