On Saturday, February 2, 2013, in Warsaw (Poland), a course “Scouting for Adult Beginners” was held with the participation of more than 30 people from all over the country. It was the third edition of a very popular course whose aim is to give an extensive comprehension of the Scouts of Europe phenomenon to the adults who, in an ever increasing number, want to enter the movement. This year will mark the third consecutive year of a big growth for the Polish association which went from 1 400 in 2010 to the expected 3 000 this year.

Two groups of adults are joining: students over 20, who become potential chiefs, i.e. are prepared to be assistants and chiefs in the units and working people, adults with families over 30, who take on the functions of group chiefs.

This edition of “Scouting for Beginners” was led by Zbigniew Minda, former federal commissioner, now in charge of the development in the Polish association. The participants could hear the presentations about scouting in general, the pedagogy of the three branches and organizational aspects. They had an occasion to sing as well as to prepare a scout “veillée”. They also had some outside activities: an example of a scout ceremony and a scout game.

Twenty instrumentalists composed of Rangers, Rovers and even 2 Guides met for a week around New Year´s to record the soundtrack of the movie “1914 – The Secret of Confrécourt”.

Among them were also four members of the German Guides and
Scouts Association: the International scout brotherhood was a highlight of the camp.

Strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion: each contributed to the harmony of the music, the drama or the comedy that was composed specially for the occasion.

Some actors and technicians also have worked around the writer.

The release is scheduled for…. the Eurojam 2014!!!
