What do we get up to? Well if you liked Cubs or want a bit of adventure then Scouts takes you up a peg, Fun and excitement, progressive learning, leading towards the yearly week long camp. Always culminating with an adventurous activity and a hike.
Through the year we also take part in several competitions against the other troops in the district of Loddon aiming to win all and helping towards a goal of the sought after Murray plate of which we have managed to achieve a few times,
These activities include:-
Raft race in which a team have to build and race it around a course, hopefuly without it sinking or falling apart.
Cooking competition. To cook a 3 course meal on a two burner gas cooker.
Camping Challenge. A weekend away camping, looking after your self within a patrol, Cooking and trying out all sorts of activities.
The Great breakfast Chase. This is an overnight hike, finding your own way around a set course by map and compass to find 5 bases and solve problems to gain a part for your breakfast.
10 Pin bowling. We with the rest of the district take over for an hour or two a bowling alley where you have a go to try and get the highest score.
5 a side football. The final part of the competition played indoors again against the rest of the district.
If this isn’t enough then there is Kayaking, Ice skating and Film shows, something to please some if not all.
