We're getting back to normal

We've been providing more at home and virtual activities since the start of 2021, but we're safely back together again, outdoors and indoors doing the things we love to do!

scouting@home

During the two lockdowns, we've kept all our sections meeting on Zoom and through Facebook. Lots of new activity ideas were needed - around the home and in the garden!

 

A busy programme gradually took shape and by the time of the second lockdown, we were able to provide a lot more opportunities to take part in Scouting@home, from scouting skills, photography and making armpit fudge to "Taskmaster" sessions, origami, finding out about hedgehog hospital and Beavers 101: a Summer of Fun

Achieving as usual

It was business as usual as many youngsters made good progress with awards and badges throughout the lockdown periods. We were able to present hundreds of badges and a many awards and certificates - especially when we were meeting face-to-face. 

 

Indoor meetings for a while!

A few indoor activities in the Scout Centre were possible towards the end of 2020 and we were able to organise some Christmas handcrafts, parties and even a movie night! For a while it was great to feel that things were a bit more normal.

camp@home

We even held a Group Camp. Everyone took part in this 24-hour camp@home over a weekend in July 2020. Youngsters packing their rucksacks and sleeping in back garden tents or in makeshift shelters and dens in their house.

 

Each section had different activity challenges, so 24 sessions took place, along with opening, closing and morning flagbreak ceremonies on Zoom, a camp fire, bingo sessions treasure hunt, movies and a late-night round the campfire chat for Explorers.

 

We had a great response to these activities with hundreds of photos on facebook to prove it. Leaders and youngsters were very grateful to parents as they were the stand-in Leaders for most of the time and we hope that they enjoyed being able to take part with their children.
