Scouting never stops.
Many Scout activities have been cancelled. School’s out. We miss our friends. Our community needs our help. But Scouting never stops (for those who don’t want it to), so we’ve put together a list of fun and exciting activities for you to try at home! (Who knows, you might even learn a skill or two along the way)
It’s all part of something we’re calling:
That’s “Innovative Scouting Overcomes Losing All Time Entirely”
The Great Indoors!
We know the coming days and weeks are going to be difficult for families across the UK, as the spread of Covid-19 causes schools to close. As the experts in developing skills and bringing adventure to young people, we want to do what we can to help.
While we normally love the great outdoors, we’ve pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas (if we do say so ourselves). Keep your kids learning new skills and having fun (and avoid hearing ‘I’m bored’ every 30 seconds) all in #TheGreatIndoors.
Check out all the activities here: https://www.scouts.org.uk/the-great-indoors/
Plus, you can now earn a new Great Indoors staged badge! All of the information, including all of the requirements to earn the badge, and where to purchase one for yourself, is available at: https://www.scouts.org.uk/staged-badges/the-great-indoors-badge

Let’s See What You’re Up To!
We want to see what you’re getting up to with your scouting at home, so why don’t you (or a parent/guardian if you’re not quite old enough just yet) show us on social media?
Tag us on Facebook and Twitter at @CambsScouts, and make sure your post has the hashtag #CambsScoutsISOLATE so we know you’re scouting at home! We’re looking forward to seeing all the pictures of the amazing scouting you’re getting up to!
