ScoutsCymru is now in the Amber readiness level.
Face to face Scouting can now take place. Sessions must be outdoors only and comply with current guidance.
For information and guidance on the return to face to face Scouting in Wales please see the FAQ page
If you are unsure whether or not an activity can or should take place in this readiness level please err on the side of caution and seek advice.
Safety of our members, the public and the NHS are the most important consideration at this time.
From 22nd April 2021, we hope to move to the Yellow readiness level in Wales with Groups allowed to meet indoors or continue to meet outdoors.

We have also launched the ScoutsCymru resilience fund which aims to support our most vulnerable groups to be in a position to restart face-to-face scouting after the Covid-19 crisis by contributing overhead costs. You can find out more here.View top tips
We are so proud of how creative our volunteers have been when delivering the programme online but completely understand that everyone’s situation is unique.
To support the delivery of the programme at home we are posting activities on our Facebook page three times a week that can be used towards some of our top awards. We have also designed a 10-week activity programme that can be used for our Welsh Sectional Awards.

While we normally love the great outdoors, there are some fantastic indoor activity ideas to keep kids entertained while schools are closed due to coronavirus. These activities will keep your kids learning new skills and having fun all in #TheGreatIndoors. The activities are free and great for all children – not just Scouts! Check out the Great Indoors webpage.The Great Indoors
Whilst Scouting is not meeting face-to-face we will be delivering a series of online training sessions and webinars. These are on a range of topics and you can see all them all on our events page.
For many of our members this is an incredibly difficult and stressful time. It is important that we look after our mental health through staying active, keeping connected and being mindful of all around us.
Our Million Hands Partner, Mind, has some brilliant resources for if you’re finding this time difficult.
