Boy scouts where delivered a DIY session from a guest from 8th Goodmayes Scout Group, Abu Umar.
Great session at Chigwell Row.
The boys beat their fear of heights and climbed the wall.
Whilst the other half where stacking crates.
Excellent team working learning about safety and building trust in each other.
This is what Scouting is all about! Boy Scouts did some serious team building exercises when they built these rafts and tested them in the water. It wouldn’t be Scouts if at least a few boys didn’t fall in the water!!!!!
Our Boy Scouts went back to learning the most original Scouting skill of all – knots, lashes and pioneering. Pioneering is the art of using ropes and woods joined by lashings and knots to create a structure. A useful skill to make camp gadgets such as washbasin holders as well as a useful survival skill to build bridges and towers!
After a hard evening’s work they deserved the pancakes cooked up by other Scouts!
Boy Scouts had a great time extreme trampolining!!! The Leaders had alot of fun too:)
15 brave Scouts pushed their intellects to the limit by representing the Group in the Annual District Quiz at Hargreaves Campsite in February. Our 2 teams achieved 2nd and 3rd place – well done to all who participated!
Scout Section went on their annual end of term trip to the Ice Skating rink in Canary Wharf. It was a truly magical evening as they skated their way around the beautiful outdoor rink.
Both Scout Troops learnt a valuable lesson about helping deal with an international crisis at a local level. They learned the importance of welcoming asylum seekers in need into their local communities – drawing parallels of how the refugees from Mecca were welcomed into Madinah by the Ansar. It was a moving and memorable session.
