Something to log into for Beavers (only if you have time and want to) learning 3 different knots goes towards your Outdoors challenge. You will be able to show me your knots when we return to meetings. Cubs and Scouts it wouldn’t hurt for you to refresh some knot learning if you would like ⚜️Ok so the surprise winner for bushcraft lesson subject was KNOTS! And the most requested time was 4pm. So I’ll be going live on Instagram, YouTube and Facebook at 4pm going through basic knot-tying. 😊👍🏻 #stayhome #homeschooling ... See MoreSee Less
