The U.S. equivalent of Beaver scouts is Tigers so this is the youngest group of scouts. Hope that William and Kate sign George up for Scouts in the future. IMO it's an outstanding program.

A night to remember | Scouts
Quote:
HRH, The Duchess of Cambridge will pay a visit to a new Scout Group to mark the launch of our Better Prepared project.

The Duchess will join a Scout Group in East London that was opened as part of the Better Prepared project, which will see us working with local communities to open new Scout groups in 200 areas around the country where Scouting can have the biggest impact.

The aim is to ensure that even more children have the chance to experience fun and adventure through Scouting, while developing skills that will help change their lives.

The Duchess, who is an official volunteer at Scouts, will delight young people and their leaders with a visit to their Scout HQ in Bow. During the evening, The Duchess will enjoy taking part in activities with the Beaver Scouts, helping to raise disability awareness. Activities will include learning how to communicate through sign-language and navigating through activities requiring co-ordination while blind-folded.

Just dropped kids off at scots to be told HRH Kate would be gracing them with her presence. Bonkers #DuchessofCambridge

"Royal hoodie
Arriving at just before 7pm after getting stuck in traffic wearing a black scouting hoodie teamed with jeans and boots, she looked casual and ready to get stuck in.

Kate is due to help six to eight-year-olds with activities to gain their Disability Awareness Award, including learning sign language before presenting the badges."

"Kate to cut chocolate with boxing gloves
We are getting more details on what Kate is likely to do tonight and it is...different.

Apparently she is going to cut up a chocolate bar while wearing boxing gloves, help ice a cake while blindfolded and learn the Scout Promise in sign language.

These are all activities that help able bodied young people understand and in turn empathise with people who have some form of affliction or disability."

Duchess of Cambridge joins Beaver Scout meeting - Telegraph
Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge dressed down in a black Scout hoodie and skinny jeans to join a colony of Beaver Scouts for their weekly meeting.

The Duchess, who worked as a volunteer for the Scout Association when she and the Duke of Cambridge lived in Anglesey, North Wales, got back into the swing of being an assistant when she helped children at the 23rd Poplar Beaver Scout Colony win a new badge.

It promised to be a messy evening as the Duchess, who is five months pregnant with her second child, helped the Beavers, aged between five and eight, learn about life with disabilities.

Sporting the Scout hoodie and matching black jeans and boots, the Duchess, who was invited to join in all of the activities, was helping teach the children how to ice a cake blindfolded, cut up a chocolate bar with boxing gloves, learn the Scout Promise in sign language, and put on a wet suit while blindfolded, supported by two-times world para triathlon champion Steve Judge.

IMO this is important for all able bodied individuals to experience if only for a brief time. Our school district's required for graduation health class has a two week unit on disability awareness which includes activities like the ones on tonight's agenda.

As a disabled person I so agree! I don't have words for how much Kate doing this means to me...
And I'd love to have been there when that mum dropped her kid off, and was told about Kate!

Oh would I love to be able to be a part of this scouting event! As a former Girl Scout and then Girl Scout leader, I can guarantee that these kids are going to have the time of their lives while learning awareness of what it is like to be disabled. This age group has to be the most fun to be with and work with I think.

Former Girl Scout here! And I'd bet you're right!

Love the pic of Kate giving the kids a thumbs up. Again, for someone like her to do this- tells me I matter to her, and that is... priceless. An amazing feeling I almost don't have words for.

Casual in black: Kate swaps high-end fashion for a hoodie - and a blindfold - as she arrives to help Beaver Scouts ice a cake* | Daily Mail Online
Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge exchanged high end fashion for a hoodie as she helped out a Beaver Scout colony tonight.

Kate, who is five months pregnant, wore a black UK Scouting hooded top with black skinny J Brand jeans and boots as she helped eager youngsters to ice a cake blindfold.

Kate worked as a volunteer for the Scout Association when she and Prince William lived in Anglesey, North Wales, and looked delighted to be helping children at the 23rd Poplar Beaver Scout Colony win a new badge.

It promised to be a messy evening as the Duchess helped the Beavers, aged between five and eight, learn about life with disabilities.

As well as teaching the children to ice a cake, Kate was due to cut up a chocolate bar with boxing gloves, learn the Scout Promise in sign language, and put a wet suit on blindfolded, supported by two-times world para triathlon champion Steve Judge.

In return, the children will earn a disability awareness badge.

The Duchess went to the meeting at Old Ford Primary School in Bow in the East End to highlight the Scout Association’s new campaign, Better Prepared, designed to bring Scouting to 200 of the most deprived parts of the country.

Duchess of Cambridge visits excited scout group - ITV News
Quote:
The Duchess of Cambridge has paid a visit to a beaver scout group in East London tonight.

Dressed down in a black tracksuit the pregnant princess joined in with the 23rd Poplar beavers group's evening activities as she helped promote the creation of new beaver groups across the country.

The official Clarence House twitter account posted a picture of the princess eating chocolates with the beavers.
Some of the quotes from the children tonight are priceless.

There are times when I SWEAR that we share a brain . I get what you're feeling, because I feel it too. It's knowing that someone in her position would see your worth by taking the time to learn, and help children learn what it's like to work with a exceptionality.

You can tell that she cares, and like her husband, she'll be the voice for those of us that get lost in the crowd, because people don't want to take the time and open their hearts. I wish more people that work in the special education field would take a leaf out of her book.

You said it! And she's a natural at hand-over (or under)-hand assistance. As I've said for years, the woman would be a gift in a special ed classroom.

Catherine was wonderful with the scouts and I like that she just dived in and participated in the activities.

I swear sometimes we do.
I agree on all other parts of your post.
For a while, some small part of me has had the nagging thought " Is Kate comfortable with people with disabilities? " I don't wonder after this.
Love the pics with the kids.
