Zoom instructions

To join the online Zoom meeting:

NB: We recommend joining via a PC/Laptop, this will ensure that you are able to see all other scouts, and we will also be easier for you at times when we share screen. But this is not essential if all you have is a Tablet or Phone

Once downloaded and installed, on Thursday:

  • Open the software and click the blue “Join a Meeting” button
  • Enter the below information and click “Join”.
    •  the Meeting ID
    • Enter your name in “Personal Link Name”
  • You’ll then be asked to enter the password.


Meeting ID's and passwords will be provided or each event. If you do not recieve them please contact us by phone, email hello@5thFromeScouts.org.uk or through social media.


Security/code of conduct measures;

  1. Please make sure you are using the latest version of Zoom 
  2. Join with the biggest sceen you can (ideally a PC/Lapto, or a tablet/phone if not)
  3. We will be operating a waiting room, if we do not recognise the name you will not be allowed to enter the room, so please make sure you use a name we know.
  4. Please keep your camera on
  5. Please be respectful to others in the zoom meeting as you would in our normal meetings.
  6. If you're in a noisy environment, you can mute your mic and unmute it when you have some thing say.
  7. To ensure the Scouts are able to take part in the activity safely, an adult should be in the vicinity of the device being used. This does not mean that they have to be online with them or looking over their shoulder, but in the same room or the room next door would be great.


If you have any questions, please do get in contact with us.
