Lads and Dads Camp 2017

22nd – 24th September

Our annual Lads and Dads camp will once again be held in the wilds of the Chatsworth Estate.

The camp is open to Scouts from both Troops and will be an action packed weekend full of fun and challenges for Lads and Dads to do together plus Lads v Dads games and challenges. Although at the end of the weekend we will crown our new champion Lad and Dad, the emphasis of the weekend is on fun.  There will time each evening to relax around the fire.

Go to MyScout to sign up and pay for the event.

For safeguarding reasons you will need to complete a DBS Check – the new name for CRB. The form is available here   Please get the form to your leader as soon as possible. Once processed you will be invited to confirm which ID documents you will be presenting for checking.  After this, you will have to meet with us so we can see the ID and confirm it on the system.

ID :  Click here to see acceptable forms of ID

If you have a scout DBS check from last 5 years, this is still valid so no need for the above process.  A DBS from another body / employer is not acceptable.

Summer Camp 2017 – It’s Kent!

This years Summer Camp is in a field near Deal in Kent.  The site is close to some great beaches is surrounded by a forest so we will be building rope bridges and bivouacking around the camp fire!  There will be trips out to Canterbury, Dover Castle and a special day out in France. You will need a passport!

Our Site -Click here to go to google maps

SignWho should come ?

All scouts are encouraged to attend the camp as we put into practice all the training that we do during the year and it’s also a chance to get away from mum and dad for a couple of weeks!  It’s also a chance for Y6 Scouts to mix with older children before they move schools. Summer Camp is the most important experience in Scouts – to miss it is to miss out on what being a Scout is all about.

What do we do ?

Scouts camp in Patrols and prepare and cook all meals for themselves and the leaders.  The rest of the time you can look forward to activities such as

swimming        volleyball  visits and trips     bivouacking

                water slide park    rope bridges

beach activities    football     cricket     free time

How do I sign up and pay ?

You sign up and pay via OSM in stages to spread the cost.  You also pay in spending money into the system and we operate a camp bank during the camp when you can take out small amounts to spend each day.  Sign up now!

 

Summer Camp 2016 – Poole Harbour Dorset

IMG_1211Another Summer Camp is over 🙁

17 Scouts and Leaders camped in a field on the banks of Poole Harbour with the only facility being one tap.

The weather was scorching and much time was spent in the lagoon, swimming, canoeing, diving, on the rope swing or just cooling off. With visits to the Tank Museum, Studland beach and a Total Wipeout course, plus cooking on open fires for the weekend the Scouts had a great time.

By just doing what we do, the Scouts gained many awards which will be presented at the first meeting back.  Summer Camp is a vital part of a Scout’s progression.

Exploring Thor’s Cave

TH19th April 2016 : Thursday Scouts and EXU Explorers hiked to and explored Thor’s Cave – and encountered many electric fences!

The aim was to practice new navigation and exploring and skills was shockingly good fun!  See the video  and more pics on our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/20thScouts/

Digital citizen badge

This is a staged award – this means that the lower category might be a bit easier for you as it is aimed at younger members.  Just pick the level you think you can do and let me know at the next meeting.

The requirements for each level can be found at Digital Citizen.  Click the link!

Go on – have a go!

YouShape Badge

Well done to everyone who has been awarded their Youshape badge.  This is an occasional badge and goes above the left breast pocket.  Click here for a diagram.

Jim Buckley

It is with great sadness we report the passing of Jim Buckley.  Jim was a member of the 20th Sheffield (Ecclesall) Scout Group for over 70 years as a Wolf Cub, Scout, Rover and Leader.

He became Group Scout Leader in 1961, a position he held for over 30 years and on retirement became Honorary GSL and continued to support the Group until ill health prevented him.

It is impossible to say how many young people have had so many opportunities because of Jim’s decades of service.  We will all miss him.

 

 

The picture above is the traditional Scout tracking sign which means gone home.

 

 

Jim’s funeral will be held at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium on Tuesday 31st March at 10.00am.

 

Family flowers only, donations to the Woodland Trust – more details will appear here when we have them.
