We took our Cubs for a Kayaking taster session on the River Thames last week, and had a great time having some fun on the water, and learning a new skill.
A big thank you to 1st Molesey Scout Group for taking us out on the water, and using their Kayaks and Instructors.
The Scout Troop Summer Camp took place in a Farmers field near Bovey Tracey in Devon for 9 days.
We had fantastic weather for the most part. The last few days had set in rain which did make for a hard time packing up.
The Scouts camped in patrols and were self sufficient in catering for themselves over wood fires.
Quite a few of our younger Scouts attending and did an amazing job. Overall, it was an amazing camp.
Some pictures of the campsite showing in and around the site.
The Scouts climbed and abseiled with DartRock at their indoor climbing wall.
The Scouts took part in Caving with DartRock.
Something new this year with Rafting/Coasteering.
The Scouts and Leaders went Hawking and flew a wide range of birds of prey. However, due to the rain and strong winds the session was cut short.
Although, still a very enjoyable afternoon.
Kayaking and Paddle Boarding
The Scouts went Kayaking and Paddle boarding in a lake. A fun filled afternoon with most of the Scouts in the water rather than on boats.
A quick session of Archery
Our annual Cub Camp this year was held at Downe Scout Activity Centre.
We had a fantastic time taking part in activities like Aerial runway, Archery and Crate Stacking. We got to build on and use a number of skills that we have been working on throughout the year, and we were able to demonstrate those skills, especially our ability to work as a team. We had great weather for camp, but we were glad of the shade and coolness that camping amongst the trees gave us.
A big thank you to all the volunteers that helped with camp, and I hope you enjoyed the activities too!
Bazzaz comes around every 3 years and this time we saw the Surrey Rainbows joining the Surrey Beavers in a day of fun and activities at Merrist Wood College. Around 2500 attended the fun day. 2nd Molesey Beavers had 20 there for the day and all had a great time with the sun shining down on them all.
There were a few hundred activities to choose from mostly based on the theme of ‘Animal Magic’ including climbing, inflatable assault courses, crafts, lazer quest, trampolines and so much more. Make sure you reserve a place for the next Bazzaz in 2021!
The Cubs attended District Cub Camp at Polyapes in June. Lots of activities throughout the site including our Assault course which was built and manned by some of the Scouts.
Overall a fun filled weekend.
Evie, Owen and Finlay took part in the District Archery Competition on Sunday 24th June at 1st ClayGate.
a huge congratulations for placing 2nd overall for team scores. Finlay had a brilliant session and landed 1st place for highest individual score.
Well done all of you!
Fantastic weather for the parade again this year. Thank you to all the Leaders, Helpers and Parents that manned the BBQ, Tombola and Plate smash stalls.
The Cubs and Beavers looked fantastic in the parade and won the ‘Chris Hill’s Cup’.
Thank you to Ted Palmer for the parade photos.
The Cubs and Scouts went to Youlbury in Oxford for their Activity camp in June.
We were lucky to have glorious sunshine for most of the weekend. The Cubs and Scouts took part in Abseiling, Climbing Wall, Archery and Shooting.
For many of the Cubs it was their first time taking part in Archery and Shooting and they did very well.
The Scouts visited the National Physical Laboratory in May.
The Scouts attended Molesey Boat Club in May and had a session in their Rowing Tank followed by a workout on the Argos.
