CRE8 Week One : Creative activities for Beavers and Cubs.

We would like to offer our support for ‘scouting at home’ to continue the good work our young people have been developing within their scouting community.

As we have been compliant with the government's advice on social distancing we would like to offer a series of positive and achievable challenges that can be conducted at home. 

We will be creating a special challenge badge for members who complete a series of “scouting at home” challenges. There will be 7 challenges across 8 weeks, linking in the programme areas which are:

  • Creativity
  • Community
  • Wellbeing
  • Outdoor and adventure
  • Beliefs and attitude
  • Fitness
  • Global
