Scouts September 2023

Our scout section has grown since last year, with 36 youths now signed up. Therefore the emphasis has been on teamwork and getting to know our members

We had a snowball fight for part of our 1st meeting. Each snowball contained some information about each scout that they chose to share with the troop. We had a silly relay race to collect and solve the scout law puzzle. Then our YLs gathered ideas of what our scouts would like to do. At another meeting we had team building activities after being assigned patrols (minesweeper, team mazes, mini gem towers and hats of different varieties). We had an introduction to compass skills working in patrols to complete compass pictures in the dark at the park. Then our awesome young leaders taught the scouts 6 figure grid references to continue the navigator staged badge. Lots of games and lots of new scouts invested too 😃
