1st Madrid British Scouts (est. August 2010) is affiliated with and under the banner of the UK Scouting Association however they nevertheless bring an international flavour to their groups due to the cosmopolitan nature and different nationalities they embrace. 1st Madrid has grown over the years to now include Explorer, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers sections. Between them they offer a truly magnificent Scouting experience for English-speaking boys and girls from ages 6 to 18. Their objective is to educate, enrich and entertain in a mixture of formal, informal, challenging or just plain fun situations. All indoor meetings usually take place at St George’s International School in the Sanchinarro district of Madrid one Saturday a month. There are regular camping trips and overseas visits to mingle with other Scouts and encourage international links with likeminded people.
In September 2018 a second group in Madrid will be established in Majadahonda. Please contact email@example.com for more information about joining as an adult volunteer or registering your child.
I am extremely impressed by the group – it certainly has come on hugely since I (my son) was last a member! I thought the opening ceremony was really lovely – so warm and welcoming. The whole operation is so organised, well-run and efficient.. I really like the way lots of parents are so involved and take on such active roles – it is really nice to see and what I believe scouts should be about… Robbie hasn’t stopped talking about nutrition since Saturday….where yogurt is on the food pyramid, what cereals really are, etc! Fantastic! And how wonderful that he now knows about CPR! We are still smiling here, from our lovely afternoon! Thank you so much again! (Anya)
