Welcome to Virtual Scouting
Up and Running
Since the beginning of 2020, technologies such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams have entered the public arena as schools and workplaces needed tools to allow the continuance of working, but from home. Wokingham District Scouts has taken advantage of those technological advancements, and build on an idea that some rural areas, like Derbyshire CyberScouts, have been using for some years.
We have opened a virtual Scout Group partly in response to Covid-19, but more in response to the sheer size of the list of young people waiting to join Scouting in Wokingham District.
To that end, in June 2021 we opened our first Beaver Colony and are planning our first Cub Pack, each for 15 young people.
The new Group meets weekly either outdoors or online, and uses a mix of Parent-led activities, such as Parks Trust walking routes or art trails, to supplement the programme. Parents, Cubs and Beavers will be encouraged to share their adventures using Online Scout Manager and Teams, from Microsoft.
If you would like to know more please visit www.101stwokingham.org.uk and see what they have been up to.
