The School ‘Easter Holidays’ 2020

The school holidays are going to be very different this year and will probably not feel very joyful or festive for most people.

If you are planning to have a (very well earned) break from your online / virtual / video Scouting over the coming fortnight, we have some ideas for activities that you could send to parents / members to keep them interested, busy and engaged at home.

For Cub Scouts, we are suggesting that:

  • They could start to make a ‘Time Capsule’, with their family, documenting their Covid-19 lockdown experiences. We have supplied a framework to get them started.
  • They could complete their My Faith activity badge at home

Documents to support both these activities can be downloaded below.


We would love to hear about how you are getting on with all the ideas from South West Scout Home 2020.  Please do send us your feedback (and any new ideas you’d like to share) to

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
