The Scouting way at RCHK
School-based activities will go ahead unless black rain weather warning is in force.
Our Group currently has:
nominally years 2-3
3 Cub Packs
nominally years 4-6
nominally years 7-10
nominally years 11 and up
(these are school years, not age)
We meet every Saturday morning between 10:00 and 12:00 at RCHK. The Group currently has a strength of around 200, including Leaders and Helpers and is, therefore, one of the biggest groups in Hong Kong, and beyond. In accordance with scouting values, the Group has both multicultural and plural outlooks, against the background of which its members are expected to adhere to the respective Scout Promise and Law.
Languages spoken include Cantonese, English, Hindi, Putonghua and Tagalog.
Meetings are devoted to instruction and testing in the various progress awards and interest badges. Time is also allocated for practical activities and an all-important game.
Apart from weekly meetings, the Group has a full schedule of camps, hikes, visits and community service. Seven members of the Group took part in the 23nd World Scout Jamboree in Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi City, Japan between 28 July and 8 August 2015. There was a reflection written by our venture Timothy Tan - A Story of Convergence. You may refer to venture blog and enjoy the reading!
The Group is always keen to engage new Leaders and Helpers in its various sections. Previous scouting experience is obviously an advantage but not essential.
The most important attributes required are enthusiasm and a desire to work with young people. In addition to this website, also visit http://scout.org/ and http://www.scout.org.hk/eng/.
Scouting at RCHK is fun!
