In the summer 1st Brookwood Cubs embarked upon a mass planting in the village to support Brookwood in Bloom, strengthening the community values that underpin the Scouting movement. To see the Cubs hard at work please click here.
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.
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.
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.

In preparation for this year’s Mother’s Day the 1st Brookwood Cubs were busy making some lovely cupcakes and cards to surprise Mum’s on their special day. As you can see from the following link they had so much fun making and indeed tasting some of their efforts at the weekly Cub pack meeting.
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.
This year’s annual quiz on 10th March was another resounding success. A brilliant night was enjoyed by all and we would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that supported the event and also to those that helped deliver such a wonderful fund-raiser. Special mentions to Chris Price who did a superb job as our quiz master, Irene Price and Jeanette for organising the raffle and selling tickets and Pete Goold for preparing the wonderful curry and ploughman’s. It was great to see all the Leaders and Young Leaders helping out too so thanks to everyone involved. Congratulations to the winning team, pictured below. We look forward to Quiz Night 2020.
On Friday 8th March an excited group of Beavers and Cubs from 1st Brookwood had a whale of a time at The Lookout Discovery Centre in Bracknell. Our youngsters had virtually exclusive access to the venue, only sharing this with a group of Brownies on the night. Such access to a popular attraction out of their normal opening hours highlights one of the key benefits of joining the scouting movement. A great time was had by all, but our Leaders needed a good rest afterwards!
“On Saturday 2nd March, 1st Brookwood took part in the Esher District Day hike at Chobham, with 18 teams taking part. Planning and navigating the route without assistance our Brookwood ‘A’ (competitive) team went on to win the event. Well done to them!”
In January our scouts took part in a district air rifle shooting competition.
