Joining scouts this school year

You may have seen pictures on the Belgian news of parents camping outside scout buildings to get their child a place.  Luckily we work with a ‘ joining in’ list, but it still isn’t possible to enrol everyone.  Your children’s safety, the capacity of the rooms and the quality of the programme all have to be safeguarded.  Our coordinator has been working hard offering spaces, where possible, to those  on the list. We have 47 new members starting this month. You should hear by September 7th  if we have a space available for your child. We have now filled all the places we can for this term, but there will be some more spaces available in January.

A good tip is to be flexible about which section night you want, we had to disappoint a lot of people this time who only wanted Friday Beavers.  Please sign up for a group near your home; there are other English-speaking groups in Waterloo, SHAPE and Central Brussels.  For British girlguiding (girls only) please sign up on their uk website.

None of the British groups meet at the weekend, except for special occasions, unlike the local scouts. So if weekends are what you want, please look at what they offer. There are also other expat scout groups in the Brussels area   eg Danish, Polish, Hungarian and Boy Scouts of America.
