The Scouts had an evening of 1st Aid hosted by Mel (Penny’s Mum) and Penny herself who is proficient in her 1st Aid skills.
The Scouts learned how to perform CPR, the Recovery Position and how to use a Defibrillator. Certainly #lifeskills everyone should know.
Thank you to Mel and Penny for running the evening and we hope that these skills can save a life when the need arrises.
Thank you to all of the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers that attended the parade to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
Well done to the flag bearers who did a fantastic job!
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.
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.
