‘Stay Connected’ Challenge 2020

Welcome to our ‘Stay Connected’ Challenge!

You need to complete the MSF Project that we explained in the morning Zoom meeting and then a minimum of 4 challenges, 1 from each of the zones, to get a minimum number of points:

Beavers (non-members age 5-7) will need to get 25 Points
Cubs (non-members age 8-10) will need to get 30 Points
Scouts (non-members age 10-13) will need to get 35 Points
Explorers (non-members age 14-17) will need to get 40 Points

You will find activity cards for each of the activities below which will explain how to complete it and suggests some possible adjustments if you don’t have all of the resources that you might need.

Our team is available to help you, should you have any questions about how to complete an activity. You can either e-mail us here or contact us via ‘Badges at Home’ in Online Scout Manager.

Create your own map from a satellite image to support MSF. Print off your map and put it in a clear plastic wallet or under tracing paper​. Draw around all of the buildings and road you can see in the satellite image with a marker pen.​ You could even use different colours for buildings and roads.​Take out the image and now you have successfully drawn a map!​ This map could now be used by MSF to locate people that need help​.

We have some printed maps available to collect in Harwell – please email us if you would like to pick some up!
