We hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well during these unique times. We wanted to provide you with an update on our plans and supports for the next couple of weeks.
In line with Scouting Ireland’s advice, we will postpone all scouting meetings and activities until Sunday 19th April. We will update accordingly depending on Scouting Ireland’s advice if this date is extended.
Scouting @ Home
We have developed a list of fun scout challenges that scouts can do at home! This is not a prescriptive list or assignment, Scouts are welcome to do these if they want to continue doing Scouting during our temporary break! We would ask that you send the below documents to your Scouts, they will be able to open them on their smartphone/laptops/tablets.
The list of challenges can be found here. Resources that can help complete the challenges can be seen here.
All of these challenges are made to be completed at home. With this in mind, please don’t feel the need to go shopping for materials, improvise! For example, if you don’t have paracord to make a woggle, use an old shoelace… if you don’t have a tarp to build the shelter, use a sheet.
Please send pictures of completed challenges to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please try to send some pictures in by end of day on Wednesday 1st of April.
