Girl Scouts put their fire lighting skills to good use during an evening summer session – making an awesome campfire and preparing delicious waffle cones stuffed with chocolate and marshmallows to enjoy!
Our Girl Scout Section went back to camping basics this week at Chigwell Row where they pitched tents and cooked pancakes over an open fire. Despite muddy conditions they did brilliantly – showing teamwork and a great sense of fun!!!
Extreme trampolining was a great success amongst our Girl Scouts – fun, adventure – it’s what Scouting is about!!!
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!
Girl Scouts took part in model making activities this session – they made model cars and raced them. Here are the winning team!
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.
Both Scout Troops met at City Limits for an evening of bowling, food and fun. 7th Goodmayes were well represented with 4 teams competing.
