Blog | Want to get fit? Be a volunteer at Scouts!

Summer Of Adventure TW Manifesto4

It’s the Summer of Adventure and Bear’s putting an end to boredom! This week’s challenge? Get fit, get healthy and get active, but don’t worry – if you’re a volunteer at Scouts you’re probably doing it already! Take a look at the ways you can stay fit whilst volunteering… 

1. Pursuing a Pack of Cubs immediately after snack time.

2. Taking part in the last minute pre-camp supermarket sweep when you realise that someone’s forgotten the marshmallows.

3. Corralling a Colony of Beavers into their rooms on their first residential camp.


4. Wrestling a sleeping bag back into a bag which could not possibly have been expected to fit it in the first place.

6. Chasing after the one carrier bag which manages to get blown across the campsite on an otherwise perfectly still day.

7. Grabbing the nearest bag only to discover that it was packed by a Network member who’s never heard of ‘packing light’.
