5th beavers. 

5th Greenock beavers had an epic adventure to the transport museum where we learnt about different modes of transport from the past and the present. We had the most amazing time. That wasn’t all though as the adventure wasn’t over, we had so much fun afterwards in Victoria park!

When we got back to our hall we had already set our tents up so a takeaway tea followed by popcorn and something on the big screen to finally tire us all out so we slept soundly in our tents. What an epic adventure!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

70th Group Camp.

The 70th held a group camp at the weekend at Everton. 

13 Scouts camped on Friday and Saturday nights. They walked up from the primary school on Friday night.  Luckily the sun did come out after the heavy morning rain & the strong breeze kept away the worst of the midges. 

On arrival they pitched their tents and set up camp then played a wide game. The Scouts planned their own menu for the weekend , so as requested burgers and hot chocolate were served for supper.

They practised pitching patrol tents and devised their own camp gateways which they built from staves.  They did their own cooking  that evening and making spaghetti bolognese. They then had chocolate cake for pudding. 

After tea they enjoyed the slippy slide and a campfire with the cubs. Supper of hot chocolate and hot dogs was then served in the lodge. 

Sunday breakfast was served in the lodge.  Tents were then dried in the sunshine – a bonus as everything was soaked by heavy rain at the last camp and had to be dried in the hall. 

The Scouts then had some free time before a litter sweep and helping to clean the toilets.  They then walked back to the village for collection so they could spend the afternoon at home for Father’s Day. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The cubs had 24 hours on site   This was the first camping experience for most of the Cubs and they had a great time working on the Outdoor Challenge and Navigator badges & 16 of them slept in the lodge  on Saturday night. 

17 Beavers came down on Saturday. They walked up from the primary school in Inverkip. They had a tour of the campsite and were shown round all the different kinds of tents.  They also enjoyed taking part in the low rope activity. 

It is hoped that there will be other group camps in the future.  Thanks to Kenny for doing most of the lodge cooking and washing up!

85th Scouts 

Scouts from the 85th Inverkip & Wemyss Bay completed their Expedition Challenge in the Arrochar Alps last weekend.

The group had worked on their hill safety and undertook a training exercise in the moors behind Inverkip in May before going on the expedition itself.
This  saw them wild camping on the mountain slopes between The Cobbler and Beinn Narnain.
During the weekend they reached the top of both of those mountains and can now look forward to a well earned rest before their summer camp in the Lake District in August.
