All the young people at Flitwick Scout Group have been busy this half term, taking part in a fantastic range of activities; having fun, working together and learning skills for life.
 
Squirrel Scouts (boys and girls aged 4 & 5) were invested into the Group and have been building models and dens, hunting Easter eggs, and crafting a flower for Mothers day. They have also played lots of games, heard lots of stories, and sung lots of songs.
 
Beaver Scouts (boys and girls aged 6 & 7) also crafted flowers for Mother’s day and have built a water filter while learning about the problems some people have finding safe drinking water. Beavers have also played games and worked together as a team.
 
Cub Scouts (boys and girls aged 8 to 10) have worked together to learn how to read a map to find where they are and where they’re going, and have explored the local area. Cubs also collected a lot of items for a food bank and learnt where in the world their food comes from, and made a mozaic coaster for Mothers day.
 
Scouts (boys and girls aged 10 to 13) have cooked, carved chip forks out of wood, learnt how to safely use an axe and a saw and have also brushed up on their navigation skills. These came in handy at the end of term when some of the Scouts hiked over 11 KM from Cranfield to Bromham where they set up their tents, cooked their tea and camped overnight. For some Scouts, this was their first time camping with the group for over two years, or their first Scout camp altogether.
 
Harry Woolgar, one of the Scouts camping said “my favourite part was making the fires – we cooked on it and later on toasted marshmallows for s’mores”.
 
Among all these activities, some young people in the group have achieved the top awards for their section. There were multiple evenings this term where Chief Scout Bronze and Silver awards, the top awards in Beavers and Cubs, were presented by Darren Reeve, lead volunteer for the group, who said “It is fantastic to be giving out these awards that represent all the hard work the young
people have done. It is great that Flitwick Scouts have continued to achieve them despite the disruption over the past two years”.
