Chariot Races, Magic Carpet Rides and Bridge Building from our meeting on Thursday
It was great to see all the members of our Troop (new and old) working together to remind any passing aircraft of our Group Number! #164thDublin
We kicked off our Scouting year last Thursday. It was great to see Scouts again and get back into action. We made some Twists (some of which were actually edible!!!) and tasty S’mores.
We had a great day on the hills today. Scouts were brilliant and set a blistering pace!
A special congratulations to our 5 Scouts who were invested at the summit of the mountain!!!
Great to see, in person, all our Scouts back in action last Thursday. We took full advantage of the weather having tasty sausie sambos and burgers.
The patrols were also challenged to transport as much water as they could, socially distancing from their fellow patrol members!! Congratulations to Ella and her Hedgehog Patrol who nearly filled their entire bucket!!
See you all again tomorrow!
As discussed at last week’s meeting we will be working our way through the Sustainable Scouting from Home badge over the next few weeks.
Scouts discussed the different goals and looked through some of the activity sheets. The goal is to complete a minimum of 8 activity sheets spreading across all 5 Pillars to earn a Sustainable Scouting from Home badge.
Scouts can take photographs/videos of your activities and share it with us by sending emails to email@example.com
All of the activity sheets and information is on the website: https://betterworld.ie
Pick your favourite activity and give it a go when you have time!
Happy New Year everyone!
We will be following advice from Scouting Ireland and the Government in relation to Covid-19. The latest update is that all face-to-face Scouting is cancelled due to current restrictions on the Island of Ireland. Any Scouting activities must be conducted online.
We will have a Zoom meeting with all Scouts next Thursday 14th at 7pm. We will send details and the Zoom link closer to the time.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
A reminder that we are going to have a Backwoods day tomorrow – building shelters and cooking in Turvey Woods in Donabate.
We will meet at the allotments car park at Turvey at 11.30am, we will probably finish about 3.30pm, as we cannot use the buses we will need parents to provide transport to and from the meeting place. (https://maps.app.goo.gl/gcQ8gR3xtXJRb63k8)
Normal gear for activity will be needed:
- Rain Gear
Looking forward to see you all tomorrow!
