Tips to improve Scouting and guiding activities and motivate

  • Scouts and Guides enjoy things by learning by doing, anything taught theoretically would bore them, demonstrate and let them try the things.
  • Follow patrol system, Teach patrol leaders and let the Patrol Leader Boy teach the rest of the patrol members (Boys).
  • Conduct quiz / first raise with small gifts to motivate and make more enjoyable.
  • Conduct troop meetings regularly, when meetings are conducted less frequently/randomly they lose interest and forget the things taught previously.
  • Every child has its own unique capability of doing things, identify them and give them opportunity to bring out its talent, by doing with the child's confidence will increase.
  • Go in slow pace, do not try to teach too many things at once.
  • Give every child an opportunity to be a leader for different roles based on the boy's capability.
