Scouts Summer Camp – Bovey Tracey 2017

The Scout Troop Summer Camp took place in a Farmers field near Bovey Tracey in Devon for 9 days. It was a rainy start but held off while we erected tents and setup camp.
The Scouts camped in patrols and were self sufficient in catering for themselves over wood fires with supervision by the Explorer Scouts.

Gallery in and around our campsite. Blah Blah.

The Scouts climbed and abseiled at Dart Rock demonstrating some excellent skills and daring deeds.

The Scouts and Leaders went Hawking and flew a wide range of birds of prey.

The Scouts went Kayaking in Dartmouth estuary stopping off to build a fire and toast marshmallows.

Scoutabout – 2017

2nd Molesey Scouts attended “Scoutabout” in July, held at the South of England Showground in Ardingly. Scoutabout runs once every three years, and most Scouts typically only ever get to attend once.
Approximately 5,000 Scouts and Guides from all over Surrey participated this year with the event offering over 200 activities including Caving, Archery, Rock Climbing, Abseiling, Crafts and Shooting.

Evening entertainment was on par with a Music Festival and had performances from Hanna Doorman, David Croslett and Britan’s Got Talent star Reuben Grey.


22 Beavers had a great afternoon at the District Beaver party.  The theme was Pinocchio and activities were based around that story.  There was puppet making, Pinocchio biscuits to assemble, Jiminy Cricket spring toys to make as well as games to take part in.  We had a theatre production based on the story of Pinocchio.  All the Beavers went home with a huge smile and thoroughly worn out.  A great afternoon.
