Blog | Summer Expeditions 2021
29/07/2021 By Simon Baldwin
Seventeen of our Scouts have just completed a two-day Expedition in three groups independently from their Leaders. 
 
After a hike through the countryside with all of their equipment, they set up camp and organised themselves an evening meal. On Day 2 (after cooking some breakfast!), they chopped wood, cleared down their camp, completed various other activities and hiked again to the pick up point. 
 
Prior to the Expedition, each group had to plan a route, organise their kit, decide on their meals and convince their Leaders that they could complete the two day adventure by themselves.
 
Expeditions are a great opportunity for the Scouts to demonstrate their skills, work as a team and have lots of fun.  The Scouts had a great time and really enjoyed themselves.

Blog | Group Activity Day 2021
20/06/2021 By Simon Baldwin

Flitwick Scout Group held their Group Activity Day on 19th June 2021. COVID rules prevented a usual 100+ young person strong camping weekend, instead over 100 members of Flitwick Scout Group attended with their section for a number of Scouting activities. 

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts took part in a variety of Scout activities such as archery, backwoods cooking, orienteering and songs round a campfire. For lots of young people, they were trying things they had not done before. 

"Thank you all so much for organising such a fun-filled day. We are so grateful for all your hard work. The children loved it!"

This term, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts at Flitwick Scout Group have all been learning how to light a fire using a Ferrocerium Rod and striker to make sparks. 

Beavers have also been learning how to light a candle with a match, and toasting a marshmallow to make S'mores. 

Cubs have cooked potatoes, beans and chocolate banannas on an open fire as well as learning how to build up a small fire from the initial tinder. 

Scouts have been experimenting with how effective cotton wool is as a tinder depending on how it is prepared, and in their patrols took part in a "Fire Limbo" challange where they had to build a fire from scratch that would get high enough to burn through a line of string suspended above their fire. 

The Dauntless Explorer Scout Unit have also been cooking sausages and camp dounuts on an open fire.
