When most people think of Waterloo, they think about that famous battle fought way back in 1815. Covering just over 21 square kilometres, in the province of Walloon Brabant, our Waterloo is home to a community of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers.
Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.
Whilst it is true that the site of the Battle of Waterloo is a brisk walk from our meeting place, in Scouting we are committed to peace whilst seeking out adventure and personal growth. Waterloo is a multilingual town and there are people living here from all over the world, and this is reflected in our Scouts and leaders. As a rule, all communication with us is in English and we follow the British system of Scouting. Our Scout troop have called Waterloo home since 1977.
We welcome you to the 1st Waterloo International Scouting community. If you do not find what you are looking for, please do contact us.
