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.

Another fantastic annual quiz was held at the Brookwood Memorial Hall on Saturday 10th March 2018 with over 80 people taking part, raising funds for the 1st Brookwood Group. Many thanks to everyone that came along and to those that helped organise and deliver a great evening. Congratulations to the winning team. We look forward to next year’s event.
On Sunday 7th January, a group of Cubs and Scouts from the 1st Brookwood Group collected approximately 70 Christmas trees from residents in Brookwood and Sheets Heath. The trees were then transported to a local collection site. Residents made donations to the group and the initiative raised £567.75 including gift aid to be reclaimed.This year half of the money raised is going to help with fundraising for Woking District Scouts attending the World Jamboree 2019. The collection teams on Sunday were hugely boosted by these Scouts, their parents and other District volunteers. The group would like to thank all the local residents who supported this scheme.
Commuters at Brookwood Station were entertained by the 1st Brookwood Group on Friday 15th December when our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sang Christmas carols and handed out mince pies during the evening rush hour. A collection was held for Woking Hospice and we are delighted to announce that a total of £261 was raised on the night from the donations. A huge thank you to everyone that took part, including a number of parents and leaders and thanks also to the local community for their generosity.
During November there was a continuation of the first-aid training that has been received during the time with Beavers + Cubs.
On Sunday 12th November 2017, the 1st Brookwood Group joined members of the armed forces and the Police at a moving Remembrance Day service at Brookwood Cemetary. Each of the 3 sections of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts was well attended despite the cold weather.
In November two of our scouts did their final presentation to the rest of the scouts, leaders and parents. They were then presented with the top Scout badge, the Chief Scout Gold, by the Woking District Commissioner, Liz Pocknell.
One Friday evening the Cubs had great fun pitching tents and practising putting bandages on each other in the hall.
On Sunday 8th October 2017, 4 Cubs from the 1st Brookwood Group, along with 3 older siblings, took part in a Swimathon, organised by the Woking Rotary Club. This charity fund-raising event took place at the Pool in the Park in Woking and amongst the beneficiaries was the Birchmere Scout site that our group uses. Each of the swimmers took turns to swim a length at a time and our Cubs managed a total of 78 lengths in 55 minutes. Together the team raised approximately £300 and were delighted to each receive a medal upon completion of the swim. Well done to everyone that took part!
