January 4, 2017 marked 105 years since the Scout Association of Trinidad and Tobago became incorporated under the Royal Charter granted by the British Crown. In commemoration of this milestone, ScoutsTT hosted a National Rally and Family Day on March 11, 2017 in San Fernando. The Rally, themed ‘Scouting: Strong Leaders, Strong Values’, started at 8:30am with an interfaith church service at Susamachar Presbyterian Church followed by a march to Naparima College Grounds where our members had the chance to partake in some exciting activities such as ziplining, rock climbing, archery, laser tag and ATV rides. The Chief Scout, His Excellency President Anthony Carmona was present at the church service where he gave his remarks to the hundreds of youth members and leaders present.
On Saturday 16th December, 2016, ScoutsTT hosted Cub Scouts from all over the country for a Promise Party to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Cub Scouting. The event was held at Scout Headquarters in St. Ann’s with exciting activities and entertaining games for the over 100 cub scouts who attended. Boys and girls were able to take part in Laser Tag games, mount the inflatable climbing wall, view the Jungle Book movie and play entertaining games such as ring toss, bean bag toss, and small goal football. Later that evening, the POS District hosted their crèche opening ceremony and campfire on the same grounds. It was a memorable and fun-filled day for all to start the Christmas Vacation.
