Cub Camp

Scout Camp

After a long wait the Cubs finally all managed to camp at Canty Bay, just outside North Berwick, in June, by taking advantage of their booking from 2020! It was the first proper camp for lots of Cubs. They had an amazing time, in a very special location. The camp was themed around the Maori people and the Cubs even prepared their own dinner, by digging Hangis. Outdoor adventures were enjoyed, friendships made and a whole lot of fun was had.
Special thanks:
It was the first camp for our new Cub leaders, Andrew, Angela, Charlie and Christina. A huge thank you to them, alongside Aongus, Diane, Haifei, Annette and our many Young Leaders.
Camping is one of the most exciting activities you can do in Cubs and these pictures clearly show the amazing time had by all. Adults included!!
Then it was the time for the Scouts at the 9th Pentland, Ratho, Scout Group. Between the 24th and 30th July, Ratho Scouts camped at Meggernie near Aberfeldy. Meggernie was the perfect setting for learning skills, getting close to nature and enjoying some adventure. It’s a wonderful campsite, in a stunning glen, cut off from the world. No mobile signal, no WiFi, and we’re glad to report they all survived!
An action-packed week of activities including a rope crossing, archery, axe throwing, grass sledging, craft, pioneering, an off-path navigation hike, building a trebuchet and swing, campfire and a massive water fight, that the leaders are convinced they won!
Thank you:
Huge thanks go to camp leader Dave and an awesome leader team of Alan, Angela, Brian, Joanne and Linda. Plus Young Leaders Eva, Holly and Mhairi.
As well as an amazing camp for the 9th Pentland Ratho Scouts, planned and run by their brilliant Scout leadership team of Dave, Joanne, Brian, Angela, Alan and Linda, ably assisted by young leaders Holly, Mhairi and Eva, the team also had the pleasure of presenting the wood badge to Angela Morgan at the campfire.
This is the completion of all her leader training and is richly deserved. Mairi and Holly also become adults shortly, so it’s their last camp as young leaders. We look forward to following their progress.
A BIG South East Scotland Scouts well done from us. Thank you to all.
