This week in Scouts we were working towards our Chefs Badge. We were talking about what kinds of things you need to think about when planning a camp particularly what food and how to pack and unpack it.
We did this because when we go on our next camp, all the patrols going will be cooking a few meals – this will also go towards our Camping Badge.
Afterwards we played a game where you have to collect as many plastic balls as you can in a bucket and bring them back to your team. We don’t play this game very often but it’s lots of fun.
I enjoy Scouts so much as we learn new skills that could save your life or someone else’s.
For the badge work this week, we worked on the media and PR
badge. What we did for this was we had to write on notes some good reasons as
to why we should join scouts. Once we
had done that, we recorded each group saying their own reasons using a microphone. This relates to the badge because we recorded
our voices which is linked with media.
I enjoyed this exercise because it gave us a chance to
express our voices. I learned, during
this experience, that you can add backing music to your voices to make it sound
better, which was another thing that I enjoyed about this experience.
After that, we played a fun game of quaterball. This was fun as there was four different
groups which each had to work together to clear the ball out of their quarter.
In the coming weeks we will be doing more work on the badge
and the thing I am most looking forward to is to produce and give a
presentation about scouting. What we
have to do, is use audio and visual media and think about how we can make this
relevant to people who are not involved in scouting.
Alongside the badge work, I am also looking forward to going
on different camps and making new friends along the way.
Thank you for giving up your time to read my blog
After we played a game of quarter ball, the leaders started
calling groups up to record our Scouts advertisement that we’d typed up on
notes. We then started playing a different game since it was only one group at
The way you played the new game was to put some keys underneath
a person on a chair, then somebody would get someone else to go and try and get
the keys but if the person points at them they will be out.
We started doing something else after the game were we set up obstacles and one
of us had to put on a blind fold, they were three left so two guided the
blindfolded person by giving directions to pass though the course with the
third person making sure that the blind folded person was safe. After we all
done are recordings, we did the flag and went home.
I am looking forward to doing more things with Scouts.
