At the heart of Scouting is Skills for Life, and it doesn’t get much more central to this than cooking. From Beaver Scouts making their first recipes in our Kitchen to Explorers preparing a 3 course meal on our camping stoves, cooking is a key skill.
Being creative is really important and it’s a fantastic way for young people to develop. There is the items you might expect, but also ones you wouldn’t - like designing and building a ship from recycled waste.
For over 100 years, first aid skills have been core to Scouting. Our members develop and refresh theses skills from cleaning cuts to using a Defibrilliator.
From building catapults to towers made from spaghetti, Scouting often means teamwork, problem solving, communication and creativity.
We are proud of our young people’s abilities to be safe on the water, but that means knowing what we are doing. From understanding charts to knowing knots, we prepare for our adventures afloat.
