Scouts At Home

Scouts @ Home

These are strange times indeed. Whilst we are not doing any face-to-face Scouting, there is still loads to do whilst you are stuck at home.

Below you will find links to Scouting and fun activities suitable for Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Network and adults. You don’t have to be part of Scouting to benefit, so please share and enjoy!

Earn badges from home! With new Scoutcasts coming for all sections, this is a great way to get your badgework done!
