We are the 1st Brookwood Scouts Cubs and Beavers group. We meet on a Friday evening at Brookwood, in the district of Woking.

Our members, which include both boys and girls, take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, visits, community events, good turns, map reading, camp cooking and first aid along with plenty of outdoor activities. Parents tell us their children benefit hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience. It can help develop social skills and independence, and give them access to some amazing and memorable opportunities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It’s a real adventure for them.

If you would like to join us please go to our contact us page, we would love to hear from you.

Diwali 2019

Diwali is the Hindu Festival of Light held over five days between mid-October and mid-November, celebrating victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. 

The Cubs busily squeezed a mini-Diwali celebration into one session where candle holders were crafted, a cartoon video was viewed explaining the meaning behind Diwali, a Hindu dance was bravely performed by one of our Cubs, and finally a traditional Hindu buffet was generously provided by some expert Diwali festival-goers.

Family Camp 2019

Over 80 people joined the bi-annual Family Camp, including Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, parents and leaders at Walton Firs Activity Centre, Cobham.  We arrived on Friday evening to erect the tents, followed by a barbecue organised by the leaders. 

Tents up, now where’s the food!

On Saturday we split into manageable groups and took part in caving, high ropes, skittle alley, nightline, crate stacking and buggy building.  In the evening the lightning-fast AGM announced the Beaver, Cub and Scout of the Year awards, and winner of the 200 Club.  The evening ended with singing and socialising around a roaring camp fire. No one seemed to mind that it was now pouring with rain! 

Sensory exploration to find camp!

Sunday morning started with a full English breakfast and wide games.  At the end of the weekend camping adventure we managed to get the tents down before the heavens opened. 

Overall, the weather was kind to us (mostly!). 

A huge thank you to all the organisers, leaders and especially the caterers, for another successful Family Camp!  Please go here for more photos of the big adventure.

Remembrance Sunday 2019

The 1st Brookwood Scout Group was proud to attend the 2019 Remembrance Sunday commemoration at Brookwood Military Cemetery. On this beautiful November morning members of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts Groups marched in line to their positions at the front of the service and showed great respect for the solemn occasion.  Photos can be viewed here.

Cubs Water Camp

In July the inaugural 1st Brookwood Cubs Water CAmp at the Explore Activity and Education Centre in Mytchett. The Cubs had an amazing time building rafts and kayaking as well as other activities including orienteering, bouldering and the low ropes. They loved singing songs and enjoying hot chocolate and marshmallows around the camp fire before spending a night under the stars. To see the photos from this brilliant camp please click here.

SCRAM 2019

In June it was the County-organised triennial SCRAM (Surrey Cubs Run Amok) event, where 13 of our Cubs joined some 2,000 others from all Surrey Cub packs for a day of adventure, activities and fun in Epsom. Click here to see the action from a fun-packed day.

Back to Basics Camp 2019

This year 7 of the oldest Cubs went on the Back to Basics Camp organised by District. The theme was the Wild West and the camp line dance was a spectacle to behold. We were pipped into second place by 1 vote in the Campfire Entertainment – so looking to engage RADA coaching for revenge next year! To see the fun from the camp please click here.

Beavers Go Wild 2019

This May 340 Beavers, including 18 Beavers from 1st Brookwood group, gathered from across the county at a Surrey Scouts camp site. They enjoyed a day of activities including Archery, wall climbing, catapults, crafts, camp fires and hot chocolate, followed by a night of camping. They arrived back tired, but happy. Our thanks to the County organisers and all the Leaders and parents that helped. Please click on the following link to see more.

Chocolate Bingo

For the final meeting of the term our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts along with their families enjoyed a fantastic evening of Chocolate Bingo. Congratulations to the winners of a line, a full house and those calling out the less well known Bingo sayings. Everyone that attended was treated to an Easter egg upon departure and the 1st Brookwood group would like to thank you everyone that came along to support the event.
