COVID-19 UPDATE – 9th SEPTEMBER 2020
Scouting in England is currently at Amber level due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. You can find out what this means by going to the Scouts website
We are currently waiting for Risk Assessments to be approved for a return to Scouting for our Cubs and Scouts sections, however, there are no plans in place just yet for our Beavers. We are reviewing this on a weekly basis. In the event that face to face Scouting isn’t possible we will continue to provide remote sessions where we can.
We welcome you to 7th Burgess Hill Scout Group, one of fourteen successful groups in Mid Sussex District.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind you of what Scouting is about. It aims to appeal to a young person’s desires for fun and adventure provided through attractive and active programmes. It provides opportunities for developing in young people the qualities that make good citizens: honour, self-discipline, dependability, respect for others and self-reliance.
Young people learn by doing, and Scouting offers activities to capture their imagination and enable each individual to find something in which to participate, develop skills and gain confidence.
As far as possible these activities take place outdoors as in camping, hiking, cooking and many others, alongside a training programme which is structured from Beavers, Cubs and Scout.
Scouting at 7th Burgess Hill is for boys and girls. It teaches what is not learnt at home or at school. However, they rely on adult volunteers to make it all possible, either as leaders to run their meetings, camps and so on, or as supporters to provide the material requirements and assist the leaders with the running of activities.
If you wish to sign up a young person to 7th Burgess Hill Scouts, please use the Join Us link at the top of the page, if you’d like to assist as a parent helper, or even become a leader, please let us us know in the comments section.
