We’re working on it

Virtual Scouting

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Scouting in the UK is operating under the red response level. This means that no face-to-face Scouting can take place.

Cotswold Scouting, to support our adult and youth members in the District are offering virtual meetings for Beavers and Scouts, and Gloucestershire Scouts are offering virtual sessions for Cubs.

We will be hosting virtual meetings for Beavers and Scouts, starting in February. The meetings will be hosted on Zoom and are open to any Beavers and Scouts across the districts. 

Leaders – forward the link for this page to your sections!

If there is a demand for these sessions, we would like to run more until all sections in all groups are able to return to scouting. We are looking for leaders to help organise and run future sessions. If you are interested in getting involved, please email dc@cotswold.org.uk.
