I guess the program can be as International as you want to make it ...
Our Beavers have been having an international theme , playing games and
making things to do with a whole variety of other countries. We are
supporting the Scout Association's UNITE appeal for Uganda, and will be
staging a mile of pennies and a hunger lunch at our church as part of
this project. We have also taken part in " Join in Jamboree " activities
for Cubs and Scouts, Jamboree on the Air etc. plus several; attempts at
pen friends, email friends etc.
Our county runs a World Friendship badge for Cub Scouts , and in the past
I have worn my BSA uniform and taken a display of " Americana " for the
boys to look at. This year we had two kids visiting from USA , a Tiger
and a Wolf. They did the course and were presented with the badge, which
whilst they may not wear on their uniform was a nice souvenir. I think
they qualified for the International Activity patch on returning home.
With the younger kids especially it's amazing what can be done with a few
props and a little imagination.
