Beavers, Cubs

iSCOUT – can you?

21 November 2014

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 training for Leadership – the training elements of these can be taken online by yourselves but it is sometimes easier to do things together. I would like to offer two opportunities to help guide you through the training:
· Sunday 23rd November 1600-1800
· Monday 24th November 1900-2100 (during Cubs/Scouts)
You only come to one OR the other NOT BOTH! We may not get through all of both teaching modules in the two hours but we’ll see how we get on.

This will be at my house (Middelgeestlaan 25, Voorschoten – virtually next door to the Scout Hut). I will provide a separate room with movies if you need to bring the kids and on Monday we can work around drop off and pick up times for Cubs & Scouts.

Doing the training elements does not commit you to becoming a Leader but it may give you more of an insight into what you can give to the Group – why not give it a go?
If you want to come then please let me know so I have an idea of numbers but if you suddenly decide to come at the last minute then come anyway – don’t worry about not informing me beforehand.

If you want to ask any questions before coming then please feel free to call me or drop me an email.

Yours in Scouting

Nevil Adkins
