Any space for my child?

Simple answer, is yes!

But…….there are 2  conditions!

We need somewhere to meet!

We think we can get that one sorted.

But, more importantly, we need people to Volunteer!

One without the other, is like a bike with no wheels! 

“I’d love to help, but I’m really busy”.

Yes. We know. So are we. 

Volunteering as a regular helper, or preferably a Warranted Leader, is a commitment. But we need people to do this, otherwise the answer to the above question is NO!

Please don’t think other people will do this. They won’t.

We would love to start a new Beaver Section and, in a couple of years time, a new Cub Section, in the Hillside area of our town.

But we need people to do this.

Remember, what we do is all about having fun.

We are open to all, and we are a friendly bunch.

Please help us to keep the answer to the above question  Yes by clicking this link.

Waiting List

I’m sorry to say, due to the demand for places, and the ever increasing waiting list, we have had to take down our Child Joining page of our site.

Both the Beavers and Cubs are now inundated with people looking for places within Scouting in Portlethen and it is now at the point that we just cannot take any more names for our waiting list.

We do whatever we can to find space for as many children as we can within the group, but for now, I’m afraid to say, we just cannot add to the list at present.

We will reinstate the Child Joining page just as soon as we feel we are in position to take in more children.

Pitch It!

Image

Yes, we did the impossible. 

We actually managed to get teenagers to eat fruit and veg! Yes, I know, we didn’t think it was possible either, but it did happen. 

Heres the proof.

The Scouts were given the challenge to come up with a yummy tasting smoothie made from all things healthy, then pitch it as a healthy option in a style the Lord Sugar would be proud of. 

Well done to the winning team. 

Fruit seemed to be the winning ingredient. 

 

Come on Lynx!

SkatingSomething a bit different for our Scout Section.

Aberdeen Lynx took on Edinburgh Capitol in a hard fought match.

We even managed to get in on the action, by having a go at the break time “Chuck a Puck!” game, where we endeavoured to slide our pucks and land their puck closest to the centre of the rink . No winner from our group unfortunately.

It was a great family night out. I think a few will be making their way back.

 

We are Amazing!

Every now and then, we need to sit down and remind ourselves what we are.

We are Scouts! And guess what…?

We are amazing.

We do stuff that others never get the chances to do.

We should be very proud of the young people in this community.

We just need a wee reminder sometimes.

Who needs snow? Not us!!

Who needs snow? Not us!!

Aberdeen Gang Show 2016

Anchors Ahoy!

Another fine performance by Scout members from in and around Aberdeen.

Some 30, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders, went along to the Saturday matinee performance at Aberdeen Arts Centre of our local gang show.

We were all Rolling Along on A Crest of A Wave by the end.

A huge Thank you to all that made the trip worthwhile.

We even managed to squeeze in an ice cream at the break!

When can we have an ice cream Akela?

Cub Badge Night

Always something the Cubs look forward to. Not everything in the wide range of activities we cover can be done by 30 Cubs on a Thursday night,due to lack of time.

Hence, the introduction of Badge Night, an open evening where the Cubs get to bring along some examples of their other interests, and hopefully be awarded through the receiving of a badge.

This evening (we actually ran into a 2nd evening, if truth be told), we had a few Sports Enthusiasts, a couple of excellent Book Readers, one very clued up, a bit of Musicianship, a Road Safety expert, to name but a few, but of course, the best part, for us Leaders, had be the part of the night when we were allowed to sample some of one of Cubs’ home baking.

Ewan, your shortbread really was excellent.

Can we have some more though?

Guy Fawlks Party Night

So the rain came down, and outside was wet an miserable.

So whats do we do?

We have an explosion of light indoors!

Our evening included learning a bit more about old My Fawlks himself, with a bit of running included, then got down to creating an explosion of colour, with led lights attached to the Cub’s and Scout’s finger tips., teamed up with a long exposure on a camera.

 

We even made our own sparklers! No explosives were used in this, just bread sticks covered in melted chocolate with sprinkles!

The evening ended with everyone taking there chances with biting a chocolate covered mini doughnut from a string (Apologies to the parents for the copious amounts of chocolate sauce used!).
