Scouting from home is a place where you can find resources and programme ideas to run programmes that Meerkats, Cubs, Scouts and Rovers can do from their home. Be creative, and add your own ideas and programmes below. It is encouraged that programmes are as reusable as possible, so please avoid having Group names or logos in the programmes.

Events[edit]

  • Weekly Campfire Chats - We are running a series of virtual 'Campfire Chats' for Adult Leaders in the movement. Join us on Thursdays at 7pm on Zoom and get the campfire chat password by emailing joy.hutchinson@scouts.org.za.
  • City Nature Challenge - Cubs and Scouts took part in this international competition to put their cities on the Biodiversity Map by taking photos of plants, animals, birds and insects and uploading them to the iNaturalist app or website. The main 2020 event took place from 24-27 April, but observations can be submitted year-round. Because of lockdown, this year's event took place in the homes and gardens of our Cubs and Scouts! To take part you need a smartphone with camera and GPS turned on, a Wi-Fi connection or data for the phone, the iNaturalist app installed and signed up, and to join the "Scouts South Africa" project on iNaturalist.
  • National Virtual Campfire - Scouts and Cubs around the country shared their campfire songs and stories which we collated into a 30 minute fun-filled National Virtual Campfire that premiered on YouTube on Friday 1 May. Join in the spirit of our first National Virtual Campfire, relax, light your fire and have fun! youtu.be/r3SSb3z1a8M
