Scouting at Home
Over the coming weeks we will attempt to put some ideas on this page to help keep youth busy, active, and healthy!
Please send your ideas to be added to the page! We would also love to see how YOU are Scouting at Home! Send us pictures (only youth with photo consent can have pictures posted. )
Also check out National's page!
Let's Help Dufferin Care Center!
Are you looking for a way to help front-line workers or individuals impacted by Covid-19? The Dufferin Care Center in Coquitlam would love your help!
Letters to Residents
Stay-at-home instructions mean the residents at care homes are unable to see visitors. A letter from you could brighten a day! Please send letters to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will send them to the care home to be either read to residents, or printed out for them to read! Let's flood them with letters!
Face masks that are worn over the ears start to irritate after not very long. Quinn Callander, a Scout from Maple Ridge, has been 3D printing hundreds of straps to take the pressure off the ears. Care givers in Dufferin Care Center would appreciate some!
If you have a 3D printer, you can find the file Quinn uses here.
If you have a smart cutter (like a Cricut, Silhouette, or Brother) you can find some cutting material ideas and a cut file here.
Email Cheryl at email@example.com and we will help get your donation delivered!
We know there is a shortage of medical masks. Homemade fabric masks are sought after! 1st Glenayre Scouts have been asked to help make some. The final destination is not yet set, but if you are interested in making some I am certain we can find a appreciative home for them!
Outdoor Adventure Skills (OAS)!
At camps and meetings we often work on skills which earn youth Outdoor Adventure Skills stages. Many of these skills are hands on, like putting up a tent or cooking over a fire. There are some items that youth can work on at home, and we will put some of those items here!
Emergency Skills Outdoor Adventure Skills
You can take a look at all the Emergency OAS here!
The RCMP have put together a fantastic home safety scavenger hunt! Either send firstname.lastname@example.org pictures of each of your scavenger items, or your checklist with completed items signed off by your parents, and we will make sure you get credit for the OAS! Or your parents can mark off any OAS you have completed in Scoutstracker as "Ready to demonstrate!"
