On the 6th of April, 1st Madrid British Scouts will hold its 3rd annual fundraiser: the Spring Fling. The event, running from 11 to 4 will feature games and fun booths, a tombola, face painting, food and much more! The event raises funds to help pay for camping supplies, trips and camps. Uniformed scouts will be hosting events such as Cara Splat, pie in the face, hacky sack, a lucky dip and some workshops. Parents and leaders are pitching in by baking delicious goodies from brownies to cakes, including some gluten-free treats. For more information or if you would like to volunteer or donate to the tombola or bake sale, please send us an email to

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:
