We’re privileged in Birmingham to have a fantastic team of leaders who come together as part of our extended county team to organise an array of great activities for our members, from competitions to trips and camps & we hope that there’s something for everybody! Many of our routine competitions and activities are communicated directly to districts and groups, however you’ll find below links to some of our larger events… If you’ve not taken part before, do take a look and get your booking in – don’t miss out!

It’s getting dark and it’s starting to rain. You’ve been separated from your group and you’re hopelessly lost. It looks like you’re going to have to spend the night in the forest. With only the equipment in your rucksack and the countryside around you, would you know how to survive?
Run annually for over 40 years, Bivouac is unique to Birmingham Scouting. Four sequential awards (Training, Assessment, Junior Leader and Junior Staff) are designed to give participants the high level of skills needed to survive such a situation, and ultimately pass the Bivouac Assessment Award, Survival Skills Activity Badge and Emergency Aid Stage 3 Activity Badge.
All participants will need to build and sleep in a Bivouac, no matter what happens with the weather – there are no backup facilities – and prepare and cook food only found in the UK countryside - no processed food is allowed.
Applicants MUST be available for ALL dates identified on their awards application information sheet, found on the Bivouac Website homepage (from Mid-December), with applications opening on 1st March. Places are allocated on a first come – first served basis and are taken fast.
For further information, the organising team can be contacted on email@example.com
Group bookings for BrumJam 2016 are now full however we are still open for staff bookings…
We are taking applications for both the Orchestra and Concert Band. The course and concerts are based in Stourbridge, West Midlands and run from Sunday 30 July – Sunday 6 August 2017. The closing date for applications is midnight on Saturday 10 December. Last year 115 young people attended – a record year and we hope to take even more in 2017.
The cost of the course has been kept the same as last year at £490, payable in four instalments. The course cost includes full board, accommodation, rehearsals and workshops with a professional conductor and sectional tutors, uniform for new members, transportation during the week and social activities. You just need to transport yourself to Stourbridge and after that everything else is paid for other than pocket money. We can pick you up from Stourbridge station or Birmingham airport.
