Our May Bank Holiday in a nutshell: Climbing, archery, rain, biking, caves, a quarry, sunshine, an angry ants nest, rain, kayaking, a long hike, campfire, Mrs Cowan’s cakes, rain, circus skills, a roast dinner. Awesome!
Today we were proud to support the ABP Southampton Half Marathon. Well done to all the finishers and we hope we did a good job keeping you hydrated and motivated to the finish line.
Less than 2 weeks into 2015 and the Scouts from 2nd Southampton have already been on camp. We braved the wind, rain and cold for a truly unforgettable camp at Gilwell Park. Joined by over 3000 young people from around the UK we took part in a range of activities including Mini-tank driving, quad biking, zorbing, high ropes and rock climbing.
We’re leaders in knowing all about camping. Last week at Scouts we made a video to share top outdoor tips for a local school.
A massive achievement from everyone who came along for Maintenance Day. Hall painted, pictures on the wall, doors and fixtures mended, lawn mowed, weeds dug up, garden tidied and bushes trimmed. Well done everyone
Our Scout Troop had a magnificent Summer Camp in Bath. Take a look at what we got up to:
Video playback not available on mobiles and tablets.
In a thrilling series of races consisting of collisions, over taking and neck-and-neck finishes our team of Scouts gave it their all and sailed to victory at the annual Southampton District Raft Race.
Did we have the best raft? Well, it survived 6 races. The ‘Britannic’ served us well.
Were our square-lashing the strongest after weeks of practice? Absolutely.
Were our home-made paddles the best in the world? Of course!
Did the Jelly Babies and Cadbury’s Fingers give us the extra boost we needed in the final? It was either that or all the cheering (and dog barking) from from our supporters on the riverside.
Today our leaders and Scouts lent a hand at Wordsworth Primary School celebration day. Big congratulations to our neighbours for being a Primary School for a whole year.
We ran a badge making stall, played giant Jenga, and showed others how to pitch a tent. It was a fab afternoon, and the rain held off right until the last minute.
A big thank you to the Wordsworth School PTA who put on such an awesome day and made us feel so welcome.
