Saving the world!
Posted on 16 January 2019
As Scouts, we believe in empowering young people with skills for life which is why one of our groups has been preparing to save the world!
Beavers arrived in their Superhero outfits, played some games, learnt about the Air Ambulance. One Beaver Scout said ‘I think kids can be heroes too! All we have to do is be nice and do nice things for each other and we can be heroes too’.
Cubs and Scouts worked on their Emergency Aid badge by learning about life saving skills including CPR and how to put somebody into the recovery position.
Creating opportunities for young people to develop life skills, independence and form friendships is central to scouting philosophy and has long term positive impact on young peoples.
