Welcome to the 237th Birmingham, 1st Castle Bromwich Scout Group. We have a proud history and have been having fun and adventures for nearly 90 years; today we are the biggest group in the West Midlands with over 240 youth members and adult supporters. As our Chief Scout Bear Grylls says:
“Every child has the right to an adventure. Life is about grabbing opportunities. The prizes don’t always go to the biggest, the best and the strongest – they got to those who persevere. These are simple life lessons that Scouting teaches.”
We embrace this and offer an everyday adventure. There really is something for everyone, from learning how to light fires, pitch tents and cook for yourself to more modern day skills such as online safety, coding and first aid. Then there’s the fun stuff: abseiling, sailing, caving, rock climbing, trips abroad, dragon boating, paintballing, the list goes on…
Anyone between the ages of 6 and 17 can join our Group as a youth member; for those a little older we’re always looking for support to help us run the best Group around.
So what are you waiting for? Take a look around and see what you’re missing!
