About Scouts

Jump in, get muddy, give back and get set. Scouts ignore the butterflies and go for it; soon so will you.

Meetings

Scouts are aged between 10½ and 14 years

We usually meet on Tuesdays from 19:00 to 21:00 at Cringleford Scout Hut

Subscription costs £35 per term, payable by direct debit though the Online Scout Manager system

Uniform

You can buy your uniform either online or in person from the Norfolk Scout Shop.

There is no need to buy badges as these will be provided as you earn them. You can check where to put them on your uniform on the national Scouts website.

Scouts Masterchef Cooking Challenge

Tuesday, 19th March
7:00pm to 9:00pm

You will be cooking in teams to compete in the Scout Masterchef Cooking Challenge tonight.

We want you to cook two courses of your choice; a starter and main course or a main course and desert to produce amazing plates of food!

Ingredients for your recipes should cost o more than £10 in total. The recipes need to be cooked on a stove top only and no use of an oven.

Teams will be judged on how well they work together, leadership (being bossy is not leadership!), use of ingredients, timings, how clean your workspace is and of course the taste and look of the presented meal.

You will be cooking to a timer and we will let you know how long you have at regular intervals. You will also need to wash up and keep your cooking space tidy.

All long hair is to be tied back please. Lets get cooking!
