Welcome to British Scouting in Oman

As part of British Scouting Overseas (BSO), 1st Oman Scout Group and Oman District Explorers deliver an active programme of indoor and outdoor activities for young people between the ages of 6-18. We welcome expatriate, English-speaking girls and boys from all faiths and backgrounds. Young people do not have to attend the schools where sections meet. Our current meeting places are generally: British School Muscat (BSM) in Madinat Sultan Qaboos, Qurum Park and American British Academy (ABA) in Al Khuwair, though meetings take place at other venues around Muscat

  • Beaver Scouts: 6-8 years based out of BSM. The Scouts often have adventures all over Muscat!
  • Cub Scouts: 8-10.5 years based out of BSM and Qurum Park. The Cubs often have adventures all over Muscat!
  • Scouts: 10.5-14 years based out of BSM and ABA schools. The Scouts often have adventures all over Muscat!
  • Explorer Scouts: 14-18 years based out of BSM and meet at other venues all over Muscat.

The programme for young people within BSO is identical to those in Scout Groups operating
within the United Kingdom. Our adult volunteers hold a formal Role within the British
Scout Association and are required to follow the same adult training programme as United Kingdom-based adults.
