Back together safely

With the changes to restrictions in July, The Scout Association has issued updated guidance. The limits on numbers have now been removed, though activites must still be run to safely manage COVID transmission. Outdoor activites are encouraged and in poorly ventalated locations masks are expected and encouraged.

The Great Indoors

We know the coming days and weeks are going to be difficult for families across the UK, as the spread of Covid-19 causes schools to close. As the experts in developing skills and bringing adventure to young people, we want to do what we can to help.  

While we normally love the great outdoors, we’ve pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas (if we do say so ourselves). Keep your kids learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors.

Cubs and Scouts Swimming Gala

Cubs swimming gala 2017Scouts swimming gala 2017

On Saturday 21st January, Cubs and Scouts took part in the annual swimming event held at the Magnet Leisure Centre. The Cubs swam first in the afternoon, qualifying for most of the finals from their heats. And the Scout gala was held later that evening. Both teams came home with an abundance of certificates, in both individual and relay events. Jason and Hawkeye represented the group in the leader races. Fantastic effort from everyone who took part.

Our group joined with 500 other Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from around Maidenhead in the annual St George’s Day celebration, The Beavers, Cubs Scouts and Explorers split into their sections and took part in outdoor games before me making their promises.

Ever boiled an egg in a paper cup?

During a cold weekend in February the Cubs camped out for a full weekend of Skills training. The Cubs spend two nights sleeping out in their tents; learn First aid, Fire lighting, Navigation, , and even tried cooking a boiled egg in a paper cup! All of the teams showed great comradery and team work throughout.
