“Every young person deserves an adventure” & that is what 30 4th Sevenoaks Cubs did today at Lower Grange Farm the Kent Scout HQ! Climbing, Zorbing, pedal carting & much more. Thanks to all the parents, leaders and young leaders that gave up their afternoon.
We have just got back from a really successful camping skills weekend.
The programme was on Saturday
- Tent pitching school
- Flag break and investitures
- Axe and saw training
- Lunch (always popular)
- Cooking Competition
- Cake break
- Wide game – man hunt including the new occasional game ‘shoe hunt’
- Camp fire with cocoa and doughnuts
The menus our teams cooked in the competition were
Stags: Homemade tomato soup / Chicken curry with rice and flat breads / Grilled bananas with chocolate filling
Foxes: Kebabs made with chicken, red peppers, onion and mushrooms / spaghetti with tomato sauce with meatballs and cheese / pancakes topped with fresh fruit
On Sunday, after an early start as the clocks had sprung forward
- Cooked breakfast
- Strike camp
- Home in time for lunch
The scouts did very well and all enjoyed, what was for many of them, their first camp as scouts. Maggie and Natasha did an excellent job as patrol leaders too.
Scouts Victorious! Our team of scouts won the District Plender Hike last night – successfully navigating their way around the Kemsing course of a clear but chilly October evening.
Update: Thanks for the extra photos Carl.
More photos and details of what happened in the event to come!
A big thank you to Peter and the team for organising it. The one downside of winning is that it will be us that organise it next year 🙂
100 beaver scouts from Sevenoaks district hiked to the 4th Sevenoaks grounds. They then experienced a year in a day, with lots of sun, water, sun lotion and paint plus a dollop of fun and then after a camp fire sleeping in patrol tents in the grounds…
Three of our beavers were presented with their Chief Scout Bronze awards by the Sevenoaks Town Mayor, Clr Richard Parry, at a ceremony this week. Continue reading Mayor presents bronze awards [updated]
