HQ Programme Planning Tool with thousands of activities

A resource to support leaders in planning a programme for their section. The programme planning tool includes thousands of activities for completing at section meetings, at home or online.

Socially Distanced Activities

Sticking at it online. Giving it a go outside. Asking the big questions indoors. We’re Scouts and even during a pandemic we have a plan B (and C) up our sleeve. We’ve put together some ideas to keep you going, whoever you are, and wherever your meetings, activities, and adventures are happening.  

The Great Indoors

While we normally love the great outdoors, The Scouts have pulled together some inspired indoor activity ideas to keep kids entertained.

Online Scout Manager

Lots of activities can be found on OSM by selecting Programme then Activities from the menu.

1st Digital Scouts

Every week 1st Digital Scouts provide a digital programme for young people aged 6 – 18, giving them the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to excel.

Press-play-and-go – pre-recorded online programmes

We know that delivering the programme over Zoom is hard work, so The Scouts put together videos to help you deliver the Scouts programme online.
