Escape Room evenings!

Naomi Booth :: Tuesday 9th June 2020

Thinking of team events to get Cubs and Scouts working together on our Zoom  pack nights was tricky and then we found Virtual Escape rooms. Thankfully some very clever people had been there before us and so with a quick Google we found these two and had great fun.

Virtual Camp Report

This May bank holiday would have been camp and the New Forest. Instead all sections 1st Woodcutts joined in our first Virtual Camp.

Naomi Booth :: Friday 22nd May 2020

What is virtual camp? Well it started off as camps do with the flag break by Skip and introduction by Skip Skip via video links. Then all members could choose from activities like paper aeroplane challenge, VE Day activities, den making, scone baking, fire lighting, foraging, whittling and more. There were a range of camp recipes to try for dinner including pizza and burgers. Then in the evening we had a giggle at the campfire videos before gathering together for an online quiz hosted by the Scouts.We all slept, out or in, tents, dens, BASHAs, hammocks maybe a few beds too!In the morning we had the opportunity to join St Marys Church online as Rick the Vic lead Scouts Own from his garden. Then many of us embarked on a 'hike to the moon' a challenge which has been taken up by Scouts throughout the country. finished at midday with flag down again performed by Skip.If you'd like a go at any of our camp activities, they are available online.
