Leagrave Scout Group

#SkillforLife

Falkes District Scouts, Bedfordshire

Scouting provides fun activities and adventures to young people, who are split into sections based on age. Beaver Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (8-10½), Scouts (10½-14), Explorer Scouts (14-18) and Scouts Network (18-25).


Adult Volunteers

Volunteers are pivotal to the running of our Scout Group. These may include leaders, assistants, occasional helpers, parents, administrators, fundraisers and more.

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.

If you would like to hear more, use the Contact Us link on the left.


Purpose

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.


Values

As Scouts we are guided by these values:

Integrity We say what we mean and when we make a promise, we keep it.
Respect We listen to others, explore our differences and work to find common ground.
Care Scouts are friends to all and think of others before themselves.
Belief We believe passionately in improving the lives and life chances of young people and helping them explore and develop their beliefs and attitudes.
Cooperation Scouting is about teamwork. We believe that when we work together we achieve more than we can on our own.


Methods

Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:

  • enjoy what they are doing and have fun;
  • take part in activities indoors and outdoors;
  • learn by doing;
  • share in spiritual reflection;
  • take responsibility and make choices;
  • undertake new and challenging activities;
  • make and live by their Promise

Programme

The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. The Programme is delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.

Beaver/Cub Camp May 2018
29/05/2018 By David Faraday

reWell! they did it! As well as a camp for the Beavers and Cubs this was a camp to allow Emma Denyer and Michele McBarron to get their Scouts Nights Away permit and they passed according to an inside source!!

Anyway, that done, it was on to the camp.

What an amazing weekend, arrived Friday morning in overcast weather, moved onto sunshine Friday afternoon, Tents set up for cubs, campsite checked for inspection, beaver hall set up then we await all the young people to arrive.
Oh and I forgot, the 7 scouts, 8 young leaders and 11 leaders that were also to attend on top of the 28 young people.
 
Saturday morning was misty and overcast but turned into a glorious day. Following a lovely breakfast, the Beavers and Cubs were shown how to make a swing with pioneering poles, ropes and knots. Then it was firelighting and backwoods cooking, which was loved by all and a new experience for the Beavers.

A light lunch then onto pedal karts and archery where a very hot afternoon led to plenty of shaded sunbathing and drinks galore.

With so much sun it was therefore very fortunate that someone had brought along a large plastic sheet, a hose reel and some soapy liquid. What followed was a lot of very happy young people splashing about in cold water.

​Tea was over and a wide game along with a camp fire sing-a-long was the order of the night along with roasted Marshmallows of course!

But what was to follow that night was unexpected, about 2 am the skies went black then white with lightening strikes and a downpour so heavy it washed the mud around  the hall door into the hall....... But guess what the beavers and cubs (camping) slept through the whole lot.........

After cleaning up Sunday morning after breakfast was onto shooting for the beavers whilst the cubs did a treasure hunt. A swap around for the groups and lunchtime saw the camp break up, tents packed and an awards ceremony for best at camp carried out before parents arrived and the weekend was over
