A Night of Remembrance: Gilwell Park 2015

7th Goodmayes Scouts hosted a fantastic evening to celebrate the end of their Scouting year 2015.  All Sections headed to Gilwell Park, to take part in a range of activities, including Grass Sledging, Wall Climbing, Crate Stacking, Zip Wire and 3G Swing.  The Scouts had a fantastic time.  We ended the evening with an Award Ceremony to recognise achievements by individuals and the Group as a whole.  Before parting, we had a reminder of the blessing of Ramadhan and finished with Maghrib Salah.

SURVIVAL SKILLS CAMP 2015!

Girl Scouts and Explorers had a fantastic time at our ‘Survival Skill’ themed camp.  They learnt the skills of firelighting, shelterbuilding and geocaching.  They cooked their own meals over an open fire.  They had a great evening of entertainment, reminders and naseeha around an evening campfire with smores and hot chocolate! They learnt lots about the art of Friendship and fun! Most importantly, the Girls were taught about our most important survival skill of all – Salah – with a reminder of how it would help them reach their ultimate purpose in life – to become closer to Allah and reach Jannah.

MSF ‘GLOBAL ISLAM’ Camp, Birmingham, 2015

Our Boy Scout and Explorer Section attended the the MSF ‘Global Islam’ Camp on the weekend 1-4 May 2015. They had the chance to discover the beauty and variety of art, architecture, language and customs that Muslim countries have to offer and share in this once in a lifetime cultural exchange opportunity. Travel to the lands where Islam has been practiced for many generations and learn where cultural traditions developed. During the three day camp they had the chance to take part in workshops and Scouting activities and have fun and meet with Muslim Scouts from around the UK and Europe.

QUOTE FROM A PARENT VOLUNTEER:

Alhamdulillah a wonderful and amazing experience.

Wasn’t easy for all due to weather conditions and cold but we all worked together and helped each other Ma Sha Allah

AlhamduIllah new friends made and we meet again next year In Sha Allah

An amazing set of children who In Sha Allah will become better Muslims from what we all learnt and experienced on this trip

JazakAllah Khaiyran to all for their efforts to help.
