January 27 is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. 🕯 Recalls the Nazi mass murder of Jews, Roma, homosexuals, people with disabilities and other innocent victims. One of the blackest moments in human history that we must never forget. The so-called The "stolpersteine," or "stones of the missing," are reminiscent of Holocaust victims in front of the houses where they lived. These are from Karlín, Prague, this morning. #skaut #scouts #WeRemember

Yesterday, Simon and Joana, two of our Cub leaders, joined other British Scouting Overseas leaders from around the world to learn about residential experiences and complete their Module 16 training.

Well done guys for continuing your training. Next step a camping permit! 🙂

Thanks to the BSO training team for organising this event.

Scouting never ends despite COVID 19. One of our Cub Leaders and his Cub Scout son decided to brave the snow and go camping in the wilds of The Czech Republic. They took some fabulous photos in the process. Why don't you go out and have your own personal Scouting adventure!

Our leaders seem to think about Scouts 24/7. Carla one of our Assistant Scout Leaders at home for the Christmas holidays in São Paulo, Brazil couldn’t help stopping by the local Scout Centre. Grupo Escoteiro Corrente - 35º SP who were formed in 1982 meet in this headquarters that they have used since 2014 the year 1st Prague was founded. We wish all the Scouts there a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from The Czech Republic. #gecorrente #praguescouts #wosm #britishscoutingoverseas

There were some cobwebs to shake off as our Cubs and Scouts sections met face-to-face for the first time in a while this morning. After hands were disinfected, we took to the course for a game of footgolf at Fotbal Park Praha. There was some real talent on display from the Tiger (Woods) Cubs and one of our Scouts didn't have the correct footwear - he got a hole in one. 20 young people and 6 leaders showed up with parents being 'drivers' and providing transport. The Fotbal Park were great hosts and it didn't cost a 'wedge'. Thank you

On the first day after the end of the second national COVID 19 lockdown, the Explorers went on a ghost walk in the centre of Prague. It was very interesting and the tour guide told them some very spooky stories and legends, such as the one-armed thief and the iron man.

Due to our volunteer leader availability and the upcoming Christmas holidays, it is possible that not all sections will be able to meet until the New Year. Our detailed COVID 19 risk assessment has been updated and all possible precautions will be taken by our leaders to ensure the safety of all our members during this time We will continue to offer a voluntary 50% reduction in our

Throwback Thursday This week’s throwback Thursday features our own Cub Scout Leader Chris ‘Baloo’ Wait as a Cub Scout in 1994. Seeing him as an eight-year-old is amazing in itself. But take a look at his scarf! Although 1st Prague Scout Group was only formed in 2014 and introduced a new group scarf at that time, Baloo who joined Prague Scouts in 2018, can be seen wearing the exact same scarf from his former UK Scout Group all those years ago. A really spooky coincidence! Did you know our group scarf colours have a meaning? The red, white and blue

Thanks go to Oliver who attended the official Remembrance Sunday Ceremony at Prague's Olšany Cemetery with his dad, Cub Scout Leader Chris (Baloo) to represent 1st Prague Scout Group.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Tomorrow is Remembrance Sunday. Our group will normally be attending the ceremony in Prague's Olšany Cemetery. This year our group won’t be able to take part, as we normally do, but we will be represented in a personal capacity by our Cub Scout Leader Chris (Baloo) and his son Oliver. This year's wreath was made by two of our Scouts Noa and Alexandra, helped by Assistant Group Scout Leader, Jenny. (see picture). The commemoration is for those men and women who gave their lives in conflicts around the world. As many of you know the Royal British Legion uses this

This year our group won’t be able to take part, as we normally do, at the Remembrance Sunday commemoration in Prague on 8th November. The commemoration is for those men and women who gave their lives in conflicts around the world. We hope to be able to present a wreath, at some point on that Sunday, but probably not with more than one or two of us at most. As many of you know the Royal British Legion uses this time to collect money to help its charity work and many wear a poppy to show their support. Their welfare

As many of you will probably know our group is now unable to meet face to face due to the current state of emergency here in The Czech Republic. We hope that this will be only temporary and we will be able to meet together again soon.

In the meantime, our group will go online and provide some fun and interesting activities. Your section leaders will be contacting you shortly to let you know when your section will begin online and how to join in.

This evening was a very important day for all of us. 3 children were invested to become Beavers officially! All new Beavers could say the scout promise beautifully! We also decided lodges and nominated Lodge leaders and Assistant Lodge Leaders. We have 3 lodges; Mouse, Rabbit and Squirrel. Also, some of our Beavers received "join in award". It was another fun and memorable session! Well done Beavers!

We are looking for a new group treasurer. Our current group treasurer Jana has decided to step down at the end of the year after 3 years. We would like to thank her so much for all the hard work she has put into organising our finances so well. We are now looking for one or possibly two volunteers to take on the role, with a view to work with Jana to handover the finances of the group. You don’t need to be an expert in finance but need some knowledge of spreadsheets and accounting would be useful. Full training

Beavers went to the treasure hunt to learn the green cross code. Now all the Beavers can cross the road safely. Also, they found the clues to make a word to get the hidden treasure. They followed the map and found the numbers on the lamp pole and characters etc. They enjoyed the beginning of the autumn in the park. The answer word to get the treasure was "LOVE". They collected all and found the treasure. It was another fun day. Well done Beavers!
