January 2020 News Update
Since the last newsletter we have had a full range of Wednesday evenings; we did a little of the following:
- Night hike and Navigation
- Strava art (drawing in the park using the GPS log on phones)
- Disability Awareness
- We had the street doctors in to teach us about emergency first aid "in town"
- We made street food from around the world.
- tried Yoga with a professional Yogi
- and a few more besides
Next week we are going to have an epic night hike from Kineton back to Warwick.
We have trips to look forward to as well. At Easter we are heading to London to do some boating in the Docklands and maybe on the River Thames.
We are also just beginning to sort out our Summer camp in Norfolk so watch this space!
Yoga - and breathe....
November 2019 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!
You can see more photos from our trip here: Kandersteg Photos
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!
