Beavers In Tents

   |   By  |  0 Comments

25 Jan 2020: It was sleepover and adventure time for the Ibn Battuta (Beavers) group on the weekend of 25 Jan. 

Spending a night at the district camp HQ, it was the first time many of the 10 beavers had spent time away from their parents. But they were far too busy to be missing home with games, marshmallow roasting and stories aplenty keeping them occupied. 

Beavers helped setup and then tidy away their tents. An experience to help get them ready and primed for the outdoor camps that lay ahead 🙂

Muslim Scouts St Albans 20th Ansar

A year in review

   |   By  |  0 Comments

2019 was our second year as a Scout Group. We started with 10 cubs and 8 beavers. We ended the Year with 24 Scouts in our Scout Troop, 24 Cubs and 16 Beavers.

We awarded 230 badges this year, and extremely proud two have been able to award our first Chief Scouts Bronze award to a beaver who has been with us from the start.

Our group went on a winter camp to Gillwell and attended the Muslim Scout Fellowship Summer camp.

our scouts, beavers, and cubs learnt how to cook on a budget, cook on a open fire, made their own ovens, baked cakes, helped the community by picking litter up from the park and street around HQ and fleetville.

its been a busy year… thank you to all for your support and help.

Hot Chocolate..

   |   By  |  0 Comments

The 20th Ansar Cubs were tasked with starting a small campfire to make lovely hot chocolate. They learned the basics of lighting a fire using basic materials, kindling, cotton wool, and flint. After a little coaching, the young cubs managed to get a small fire going long enough to boil some milk and make a well-deserved hot warming hot chocolate.

If you would like to find out more about the 20th Ansar scouts and get your children invloved get in touch here. We have a few spaces available for our next intake in January. 

 

 

Cook off Challenge

   |   By  |  0 Comments

Today the Ibn Sena Cub pack experienced what cooking is like for those who don’t have much. We discussed their weekly meals and asked them how they would feel if they did not have the luxury of different meals each day and the problems facing children of their age who just have basic means to cook.

We gave them a pan, a small stove and some raw ingredients so they could create some simple yet nitrous food. The ingredients we gave were red lentils, flour, water, pasta, tinned chick peas, and some larder options.

over 30 minutes they made dhall, chickpwa curry and pasta and tomato sauce, and topped it off with flat bread.

This session demonstrated that we are citizens of the world and we should have an understanding of how others in the world live. And that our help and support though charity and donations do help those in need.
