November News Update

Summer Camp Trip to Kandersteg, International Scout Centre

The explorer unit have had a busy term after our summer trip to Kandersteg (Kandersteg Photos) where we did everything from swimming in glacial lake and white water rafting to hiking to remote Mountain huts to spend the night; the second of which had its own cable car for delivering supplies as it is an hours hike up from the road 600m vertically!

We had a great turn out from Explorers at Remembrance Day Parade

We have an interesting mix of activities on a weekly basis and have been continuing to build our two wooden boats that hopefully we will be testing on the river in the summer.

We have done a wide-game on the racecourse which adds some interest a and extra challenge, as there is much less light there than in St Nicks park!

Those lucky enough not to work at the weekends have joined us at Draycote water to do some sailing. This Wednesday we will be trying a little yoga, broaden the mind and see how inflexible some of the adults are!

A number of explorers have or are about to finish their DoE & Chief Scout Bronze/Platinum awards this term so well done to them!
