On Thursday 13th July, two District Youth Commissioners (Miles and Owen) from East Grinstead Scouts ran a #Youshape evening for 1st Langley Green Scouts.
After introductions and questions about #Youshape, the scouts were still slightly confused as to what it was. They introduced the snowball game, “throwing” ideas at each other for programme and created a ‘cool wall’ of all their favourite ideas.
Following this, they ran a Dragon’s Den activity. This involved the Scouts splitting into their patrols and creating a unique pitch to give to their leader team and the YC representatives. Their ideas included Paint balling evening, an activity camp and a Superhero themed Olympics. These ideas were all taken into consideration and will hopefully be implemented into the future programme.
After, whilst the younger scouts were playing a game, they introduced the leaders into a PL Council/Forum. This was to show the PL’s their roles and how they can influence their patrol and help them cooperate with the leaders to make their troop thrive.
