This blogg is about scouting, cub scouting and the activities of Falkenberg Scout Group, Sweden, in particular.
Survival of the hungriest?
The theme of today´s meeting was Edible things. The Challengers were given 30 minutes, a flora and a book about fungi and were let loose in the park. They came back with some nice stuff to cook on the can kitchens they made last week.
In the end, we had a three course "meal" consisting of fungi, cooked in their own juices, pine needle tea and rosted rosehips. We weren´t that full up. Edvin, Anton and Johannes also had some ants. I couldn't bring myself to try any, but they said they were really nice and tangy, and that they only tickled the tounge for a moment.
In Sweden Cub Scouts are called Tracker Scouts and Discover Scouts and the age groups are: 8-9, 10-11 (12). The age group after that is called Adventure Scouts (12 - 15) and then Challenger Scouts (15 - 18) Then there are Rovers, and Scout volonteers. This page is the chronicals of the packs of Falkenberg Scout Group.
We are going to describe what happens at meetings, hikes and camps as best as possible and share links to resources and tips. To some extent I'm sure that some Scout politics will find its way in here as well as information about Swedish scouting and tips of activities to come and enjoy in Sweden.
