Successful Scout Night Hike and Sleepover for Scouts, Cubs and Beavers whilst doing the JOTI

posted 19 Oct 2013, 06:08 by Sarah and Mike Dodds
A number of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts recently took part in this event and enjoyed every minute of it.  Scouts night hiked in from Sunderland Bridge to the Hall navigating all the way and then put up their tents in the hall ready for their sleepover.

They also Skyped their Australian friends Belmont Scouts Geelong Victoria and ended up dancing the same dance together 1000's of miles apart, but at the same time (Bedtime UK and Wake up time in Australia).

Whilst the Scouts were out hiking the Beavers and Cubs were Skyping Italy and talking to an Italian Scout.  They then also Skyped our friends in Australia and learnt all about their badges from one of their leaders.

All Sections also took part in Scout Link and had live web chats with Beavers, Cubs and Scouts round the world, from Lebanon, India, Afghanistan, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, China, South Africa and many, many more.

They also decided to write letters to their friends on the other side of the world to keep building links.

Congratulations everyone for taking part in the International event.
