The Scouts and Explorers had a brilliant time in Guernsey for our Summer Camp. The weather was mostly kind which made cycling and events much easier and enjoyable.
The campsite was well equipped and allowed for a very comfortable stay in Guernsey, we were spoilt with the facilities and the site.
We took part in Abseiling a 90 foot wall, Kayaking on the Sea, Coasteering with a fantastic view and a visit to the German Underground Hospital.
Cycling, which was the Scouts main form of travel took us to see many war fortifications along the way. An unexpected event was the Sand Racing at Vazon Beach which had motor bikes and car racing.
Thanks to a kind donation to the Scouts, we were able to fillet and cook large Pollock as a pre snack before dinner. The leaders were surprised at the eagerness to fillet a whole fish, and then eat it.
Thank you to the Scouts for their exceptional behaviour on the ferry and out and about in town. You really did the group proud.
And finally, these trips don’t happen without the Leaders – thank you!
The Scouts took part in our own rendition of Ready, Steady, Cook. They were offered a wide range of ingredients and had to plan a main meal for judging by the brave leaders. Some great ideas, and well presented food throughout. Well done!
Escapade 19 was a District event held at Walton Firs with attendance from all groups in the Esher District. I loose count of final numbers, but it was around 900 members.
A host of activities were available and the weather was glorious making it a great event.
Thank you to everyone that helps us with the Carnival this year. We had a great turn out for the parade and you all looked great!
This years group camp was held at Polyapes. A range of activities and games, with the highlight being a water game.
The Cubs took to their bikes for evening ride along the river. Well done to everyone!
The Scouts took part in a water activity day. It was a cold day, but the Scouts still had smiles on their faces despite the temperature of the water.
The Scouts were lucky enough to attend an RAF Research Day. A great day was had by all. The Scouts achieved the Air Researcher Activity Badge by attending.
The Cubs went Kayaking for an evening of games and time on the water. Amazingly, everyone stayed relatively dry.
A great turnout for the Esher District Cross Country races this year. Great to see so many Adult parents and helpers participating.
