If you think Scouting’s just about knots, woggles and big shorts, then be prepared to be surprised. It’s how Richard Branson, Barack Obama and David Beckham got their start in life and you can benefit too.

The 1st Hague Group has four sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, and Explorer Scouts. Each section is aimed at a different age group and has its own balanced programme of activities, badges and awards. Youth members progress from one Section to the next depending on their age a two different point in the year, the first Monday of the British School in the Netherlands autumn term and the Monday after the February half-term (refer to our moving-on policy for more information).

More details about each section can be found below:
