Hilversum International Scouts are a pretty cool bunch of people. We come from all walks of life and most have lived in different countries. We enjoy doing fun and exciting things including GPS treasure hunts, rock-climbing, map-reading, hiking, flag making, fire-prevention, first-aid, pioneering, cooking and much more. If you are between 11 & 15 years of age and speak English then come along and join the fun. We meet most Thursday evenings. Scouts learn more about the outside world and we tend to give them more responsibility than the Cubs. Under the leadership of the Patrol Leader they will sometimes go into town in groups and solve riddles or go on adventures. The Scout Leaders make sure all this happens in a safe environment.
The Scouts have two or three camps each year. This is one of the highlights of the year for the Scouts and it is a chance to do more challenging and spectacular activities. We try to organise camps around a specific theme. For instance a “Hunger Games” camp and a “Wie Is De Mol” camp (“Who is the Mole”).
We can also participate in regional scouting competitions with our Patrols, representing Hilversum International.
