Activities at home

Activities that can be done at home

Following recent government announcements the Scout Association has decided that all sessions are to be suspended until further notice. We are keen to help and support our young members to continue working towards their badges and follow the fundamentals of Scouting. 

Below you will find activities based on each section. Please encourage your young person to complete as many of these activities as possible. Once completed take some photos or build a scrap book and bring these along when we reopen to have the badge requirements ticked off.

If you have any questions please get in touch by email: info@186sheffield.org.uk
