Leagrave Scout Group

#SkillsforLife

Falkes District Scouts, Bedfordshire

Scouting provides skills for life 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

Our values are at the heart of who we are and what we do:

Integrity We’re honest, we try to do the right thing (even if no-one’s watching), and we stay true to ourselves.
Respect We’re thoughtful of people’s feelings and values, treating everyone as we’d like to be treated ourselves.
Care We’re kind to others, looking after the world we live in.
Belief We explore our beliefs and attitudes with wide-open minds.
Cooperation We work with others to change the world for the better, making friends along the way.


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.

Back to Basic Camp
04/04/2022 By David Faraday

This weekend Leagrave Scout group headed off to Boyd Memorial Campsite and Activity Centre in Henlow. We had all of our sections camping. The scouts along with most of the young leaders arrived on Friday. We were in our brand new tents so after some instruction they got on well setting them up. Some time was then spent around the fire enjoying the warmth before the -3 temperatures overnight. Some of the scouts and young leaders didn't quite listen to us about how to stay warm overnight, but they certainly did on the Saturday night. As they realised, that we weren't just telling them things for the sake of it. Saturday had the scouts cooking breakfast. This was a full fry up with cereal option. The Beavers and Cubs then joined us on camp. We were supposed to be having the Beavers stay in the new bus on site, but it was not quite ready so they ended up staying in the hall instead. We will be taking the Beavers back another time to enjoy the bus. We then went on to do some fire lighting. This was aimed at the different sections for what they are able to do safely. Good fun was had by all. Everybody made their own backwards cooking lunch with a varying degree of success for the pocket pizzas. A small pioneering activity which consisted of making catapults then followed in the afternoon. Some of the scouts headed off to the kitchen and prepared dinner for nearly 50 people. As the temperature started to drop again we were all huddled round the campfire with arkala belting out some campfire songs. Everybody on the campsite knew our group name by the end of one particular song. After a reminder to the scouts about the cold weather and wrapping up again we all drifted off to bed. After camp was collapsed and cleared up we had three invested in to scouts, and 1 in to Young leaders. This camp was not supposed to be a freezer or winter camp, but it did end up being one. AJ and Amy from District both payed a visit to us over the weekend.

Blog | Luton Airport Fire station Visit
04/03/2022 By David Faraday

Tonight, the Scout section visited the Luton Airport Fire station. After security, we were escorted to the fire station, where we received a safety brief. We had a look at a map of the airport and the scouts then realised that it was not as small as they thought. Next was a PowerPoint covering items like the fire triangle and Stop Drop and Roll. We then split into four groups to have a look around. The watchtower is manned 24 hours a day with a hotline to the control tower and a fab runway view. The scouts got the chance to look inside a panther and operated the aerial water cannon. The scouts (and Young Leaders) got to try on a set of BE (Breathing Apparatus). The last stop of the tour was a demonstration of the fire triangle. A big thank you to Richard Sharples and The Airport Fire Station for hosting us tonight. #lutonairport #LutonAirportFireStation #scouts

Friday had the Scouts on a hike in the dark. The scouts did a good job of navigating and also visited a trig point. The aim was not to do the distance but to concentrate on map reading skills. We covered 4km but did some technical map reading. They were getting to an exact point on the map. The parents knew we were on the way back.
