Scouts’ Selfie Challenge

This week we have a fun activity for Scout Troops to do during a Zoom meeting.


  • Familiarise yourself with the powerpoint presentation (provided). All the challenges are self explanatory.
  • Let Scouts know in advance that they will need access to a smart phone or similar device.


How to participate (using a video meeting tool like Zoom):

Share your screen to show the powerpoint presentation and explain the challenges.

Present one round at a time and give the Scouts a specified amount of time (about 20 minutes) to complete the challenges.  Explain that it is not a race, but that they should try to complete all the items in each round in the time given.

The Scouts should send their answers’ (selfies and videos) to your section’s (closed and private) FB group for all to enjoy and share.

Points can be awarded for the most accurate (or most creative) interpretations of each challenge.


With thanks to 16th Edgware Troop in London  for the original ideas.

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