Kilmacolm Beavers Go On A Hike
Kilmacolm Beavers had a great time at summer camp last weekend at Finlaystone Country Estate. They enjoyed den building, mini beast hunt and hiking adventures. A lot of new Beavers celebrated their first camp too. A big thanks to the rangers and parent helpers.
Everest Challenge Reaches New Heights
The Everest Challenge Scouts and Explorers upped their game a bit in May, climbing two Munros back-to-back, and their first 1000m hill as well. They climbed Beinn an Dothaidh at Bridge of Orchy and Stob a Choire Odhair in the Black Mounts. Better than that, fifteen of the group were awarded their Eiger neckies, and one Scout – Franek – passed the 19,331ft milestone to earn the first Kilmanjaro neckie of the year. The group earned praise for putting up with a fairly miserable Sunday, but when the clouds cleared they did get some great views down Glen Orchy and North over Rannoch Moor and the Black Mounts. They are now looking forward to another weekend hillwalking in June.
