Alarms will be ringing early tomorrow morning and all our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers will be getting ready for their return to school!
This week will also see the return of our meetings. So we hope you are all refreshed and ready to resume the Scouting adventure!
We have lots of fun activities, badges and most importantly CAMP scheduled for this half term! Newly invested members of the 1st Doha Scouting Group will really get to see just how much fun it is to be part of British Scouting Overseas, and the positive differences we make to our local communities.
We have been busy raising lots of money for the 2nd Chance Animal Shelter and were looking forward to working hard at the shelter to improve conditions for the cats and dogs who are waiting to be re-homed.
Bad weather predictions meant a change of venue; but this did not dampen spirits, as we set up camp for the night at Compass International School in Madinat Khalifa.
Games, quizzes, learning camping skills, (such as cooking dinner from scratch on our stoves and tying knots) made the day fly by.
As we settled down around the campfire to sing songs and tell stories, hot chocolate made by the pot load was a welcomed treat!
We look forward to re-scheduling our camp at 2nd Chance Animal Shelter in the New Year; until then we will continue to do our part in the community and raise even more money for this great cause.
