Back in action

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!

Sustainable Scouting From Home

Hi all,

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 raventroopleaders@gmail.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!

Thursday – 10th Dec – Cake decorating

Thursday was a baking themed meeting with the Scouts putting their creative and artistic skills to use, designing and decorating cakes. The result was a patchwork of colourful and delicious looking cakes! Check out our collection of amazing cakes below

One of our Scouts made an extra effort creating an amazingly wonderful Gingerbread House. Well done Eve, it was fantastic and eye-catching Gingerbread House. Brilliant skills on display! There is still time to enter the Great Fingal Bake Off if any other Scouts are interested in entering:
