Scouting, also known as the Scout Movement, is a worldwide youth movement with the stated aim of supporting young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development, through the Scout Method, that they may play constructive roles in society.

Scout method, a program of informal learning with an emphasis on practical outdoor activities, including camping, woodcraft, aquatics, hiking, backpacking, and sports.


The Pelican Scouts mission is to provide a safe, fun and exciting programme, based on the Jungle Book, for young children to become responsible and considerate individuals through the Scout Promise and Law.

Where is Akela?, 26th January 2013

Written by: Justin Kong, Senior and Scribe Leader and 
Claudia Kong, Assistant Sixer and Scribe

Kaa, together with the sixers; assisted by Mr. Peter and 2 parent volunteers, we held our 2nd scout meeting for the recruits.

After the formality of horseshoe, we gathered in Indian files. Kaa then divided the recruits into 4 groups namely Ant, Bee, Cockroaches and Dragonfly. (The recruits from group Cockroaches ‘protested’ to the name. After much ‘protest’ they were renamed as Centipede.)

The first highlight of the day was a quiz for the recruits to recap what they had learned last week. Kaa asked questions like the name of the sixers, the name of the sixes (The 10 animals) in Henry Park Pelican Scout, the characters in the jungle book and even a challenge of drawing the Singapore Scout emblem. All 4 teams did very well and points were allocated to the teams. Next, Justin & Jihn Shenn led the sixers and recruits in singing some of the all time favorite campfires songs.

After our well deserved break (special thanks to Mr. Peter for giving the sixer a soft drink treat), the sixers proceed to prepare for the left hand shake skit for the campfire under the supervision of Mr. Peter while the recruits had a wild time playing games organized by our 2 parent volunteers and assisted by 4 special helpers (Claudia, Evangel, Janice & Jessica who came to help each other prepare for the Bronze & Silver arrows test)

The fun filled day ended on a high note, the winning team received a treat from Kaa. We can't wait to have more fun and laughter with the recruits next week at the recruit camp and our annual campfire.
