Hi there. Just wanted to hear how some of you lot invested your Scouts. I'm looking at new ways of investing such as on an activity (e.g. raft race) where it would be more rememberable and enjoyable for the invested Scouts.

How do you guys and girls invest?

We once did it at a outdoor cooking night and we cooked the food, had the investiture, then ate everything - and of course without forgetting the marshmallows :). Everything was done on a open fire and everyone had a great night singing songs after to!

Recently, we have invested some people on the sunday of our summer camp.

We our Scouts tend to invest people on the end of the evening where parents can come and watch and take pics.

The idea with the Peyton ESU is that eventually they will get to chose where they individualy want to get invested.

To be boring, we just have the standard hold the Union flag in one hand and make the Scout sign with the other. The do daf things like having them standing in a canoe while we do it :)
