Thinking Day idea: European Castles and Palaces patch program
Thanks to Field Director Elyse Roland for pointing out this neat patch program: European Castles and Palaces!
Visiting castles and palaces is something Scouts in Europe can easily do as a troop or on their own – that’s what makes this patch unique to those of us overseas. You will find, however, you can complete the requirements listed without ever having visited a castle, palace or ruin, but then, you wouldn’t have as much fun! You may use books, web sites or your school’s host nation teachers to gather information to complete this patch. Visiting a castle, palace or ruin would help you complete many of the requirements too. So, we encourage you to visit at least one castle, one palace, and one ruin to truly get the full experience of EUROPEAN CASTLES AND PALACES!
