Young Leader Belt

Posted on Sunday, December 23rd, 2012


All in all a lot of work, and Alice, true to form did not set herself easy challenges.  For instance, for the final challenge of running part of the section, and planning and leading a planning meeting, she decided that rather than collecting subs, or registering, she would take on the organisation of an entire camp for the Cubs, from notes, to collecting the money, and planning and running the activities.  Having run a camp for the Young Leaders over the summer on the nights away passport scheme, Alice commented that ‘cubs need a lot more activity planned, but they do enjoy similar games’

It was lovely to welcome a so many leaders from the 25th Scout Group and Southampton City District to congratulate them both, although it was a shame we couldn’t get Colin to come up the big slide (we were at Kids2Day soft play with the 25th Beavers and Cubs.

We look forward to welcoming Alice to an Adult Role in Scouting when she turns 18.

I understand there are a lot of other Young Leaders who have set their sights on the Young Leader Belt, so watch this space for more presentations soon!
