Last weekend I took my Scouts to our District Funcamp, with just over 400 young people attending the weekend fun camp.

Scouting in the U.K. now has the largest number of volunteers than we’ve had in our entire history! There are now 457,000 young people involved in Scouting across the UK, which means 457,000 young people’s lives are being enriched with Scouting skills to help better prepare them for the future #skillsforlife

1) The new generation’s alternative word for “cool”.

The new generation originally used swag to describe anyone thought to carry themselves in a way considered by some to be sexy / cool.

Now it is used to describe anything thought to be cool, initiating the irk of previous generations and members of the new generation that disagree with new words.


I also wrote a blog post asking Leader’s the exact same question. Have a read here if what the leaders can up with.
