Remberance Day 2022

St Albans District Scouts attended the rembrance day parade, our group was represented from squirels up to exploeres, leaders, and parent helpers.

Its important for our young people to understand the sacrifices others have made for our freedom. And do understand that a united community made up all faiths and cultures need to stand side by side at times of need.

Over 70 million people died in both world war 1 and 2 and the fallen were made up of solders from all faiths.

Scouts Cafe

The Chef badge, for scouts is about getting the scouts to think about food differently and to be able to plan, cook and serve a balanced meal.

We took it one step further and got them to cook for thier parent’s. Over two sessions they planned thier menus, divided jobs and tasks and the shopping on a Ā£10 budget.

On session 3 they cooked and parents were invited to be our tasters.

Whats different…

As a predominately Muslim scout group were often asked whats different about your sessions/meeting.

We do scouting, in all the traditional sense but we add little elements that our leaders and young people relate to. While we still have a traditional opening ceremony for all sections, the grand howl, patrol ceremony we always start with a big Bismillah and sura fateha for all sections from squirels to explorer’s.

We also try and bring in an Islamic perspective on the life skills we teach based on the Spiritual Development Guides produced by the Muslim Scout Fellowship.

We also provide a provision for prayers if they fall during our sessions and activites off and on site including camp.
