7th Farnham (Elstead) Scout Group

Facere Optimum

Farnham District Scouts, Surrey

Scouting provides skills for life to young people, who are split into sections based on age. Beaver Scouts (6-8), Cub Scouts (8-10½), Scouts (10½-14), Explorer Scouts (14-18) and Scouts Network (18-25).


Adult Volunteers

Volunteers are pivotal to the running of our Scout Group. These may include leaders, assistants, occasional helpers, parents, administrators, fundraisers and more.

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? Or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.

Purpose

Scouting exists to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.


Values

Our values are at the heart of who we are and what we do:

Integrity We’re honest, we try to do the right thing (even if no-one’s watching), and we stay true to ourselves.
Respect We’re thoughtful of people’s feelings and values, treating everyone as we’d like to be treated ourselves.
Care We’re kind to others, looking after the world we live in.
Belief We explore our beliefs and attitudes with wide-open minds.
Cooperation We work with others to change the world for the better, making friends along the way.


Methods

Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together based on the values of Scouting and:

  • enjoy what they are doing and have fun;
  • take part in activities indoors and outdoors;
  • learn by doing;
  • share in spiritual reflection;
  • take responsibility and make choices;
  • undertake new and challenging activities;
  • make and live by their Promise

Programme

The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world and skills. In each section a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes: leadership, teamwork and personal development. The Programme is delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.

COVID Return to Scouting
14/09/2020 By Debbie Ollerenshaw
Scout Science

We are currently at Anber status which means that we can meet face to face in line with our COVID risk assessments. Please refer to our COVID risk assessments for the full details, but some key points are:

  • Indoor activities are now allowed, but outdoor activities are preferred and should be encouraged
  • Numbers in each group to be no more than 15 young people and up to five leaders (carers can be in addition and will not be counted in these numbers) – this applies both indoors and outdoors. Leaders can also include Young Leaders.
  • Young people must stay in their limited group size but adults can move between these groups, i.e. across the 25m spacing if outdoors or to a section meeting at a different time on the same day.
  • Leaders don’t need to wear a face covering when delivering activities – however, it’s recommended to wear one in all other circumstances while indoors.
  • Scouts and Explorers must wear face coverings indoors. Exceptions as per national guidelines are permitted.
  • For now, all young people in all sections must continue to social distance by 2m from each other where possible and from adult volunteers at all times.
