At the end of our session, our Beaver's feedback for the Online session was "They enjoyed EVERYTHING". Due to the worldwide pandemic half of our term, we needed to meet online. No matter what is happening in our world we will not stop scouting! There was a total of 12 great indoor sessions with our Beavers. Believe it or not, we could see some Beavers progress during these sessions. That little progress made us all happy and gave us the motivation to deliver more high-quality and fun sessions as well as a great influence for our Beavers. It was so…

The Beavers enjoyed the camp songs to start our last session. Because of our last online session, some Beavers dressed up and make a cook hairstyle and bringing their favourite toy today. We discussed what we are going to do when we are permitted to meet again. There were many exciting ideas from the Beavers!

Well Done Beavers!

The Beavers learned about the Space. We talked about the different stars in the sky, constellation, planets, and the latest news about the Space X project from NASA! Most of the Beavers want to go to Mars. Some of them want to go to Saturn. It could be possible near future! At the end of the session, one Beaver volunteered to read a story for us. He read it beautifully and showed us a picture just like the leader has been doing during this online session! We are all impressed! It was another fun and amazing session! Well done Beavers!

Worthing Scouts in West Sussex UK have been putting bears with a scarf in their windows for young people to spot out on a walk, during the Coronavirus lockdown there. We were sent this picture by one of our groups friends from Worthing Harvey Cranford who was in Prague a few years ago doing his Explorer Belt. Harvey said 'I have a fair few scarfs, I change mine every week. This week Ivy the Elephant is representing our overseas cousins!'. Look whose scarf he chose this week! πŸ™‚ tiny.cc/4t4xnz #internationalfriends
