The Group will be holding its now traditional “end of year water evening” on 6th July at BSN Voorschoten. Bring your water pistols and be prepared to get very wet!
Location: Beach at Vlietland – see location map and below.

Dear Parents,
The development of our future Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer Leaders is vital to the on-going health of our Scout Group. We are currently facing a crisis that threatens the continued existence of the Beaver Colony. There are similar, though not quite as urgent, strains on the Cubs section and even the Scouts and Explorers could do with some additional support – it is a lot easier and more fun when the jobs get shared by many shoulders rather than few.
There are three modules in the basic …

Jonathan will be stepping down as Akela after the District Camp, due to his re-location back to the UK.  This leaves a hole in our leadership team and we will have to look into doing a parent rota to help the remaining leaders unless we can find at least two volunteers to take over the running of the Cub Pack.
Scouting is fun and very rewarding in the sense of what you learn and also the skills you pass on to the Cubs. If you are interested then please contact us and …

Dear Parents,

Well tonight will be our last evening before the Half Term break.

I thought I would share with you all what we have been up to over the last few weeks.  We have had an active couple of weeks as we have worked on our Fitness challenge. This has focused the Cubs on being active, healthy eating and tonight we are having a visitor in the name of Emma Moore to discuss Mindfulness.  We have made bird feeders which I hope are now hanging in the garden.  Last week we …

The return of school following the summer holidays marks a new term for cubs too!  The first meeting of the year will be at the hut in Voorschoten on Monday 9 September at 1845.  As we advised before the summer, this sees the merger of the former Monday and Tuesday night packs into a single Monday-night group, called the Batavierens.  We’ll be organising the new sixes and the Sixers and Seconders at this first meeting of the term.  Looking forward to seeing you all and a fun-packed term of activities!

Firstly on behalf of all the leaders may we wish you a great holiday.  We hope you are all going off to great and interesting places which you will share with us in September. As you read this probably you have already gone on your holiday or just returned.

Thank you for the wonderful memories you have given us over the last year. We have done so much. Ayers Rock, four Camps and a visit from the World Wildlife Fund. We also started a new Facebook page and Twitter feed for camps …
