The new explorer scout term starts on Monday 11th September – all the dates for the camps currently planned are now on the website – please submit the booking form ASAP.
Also, before the term starts we need help at the Great River Race – please get in touch with Nigel if you are free to help on that weekend.
Although many of you will have started doing your DofE Bronze with school – why not do it through scouting as it will be significantly cheaper and you will be doing the expedition with fellow scouts that already know how to pitch a tent, read a map etc.
In the DofE section of the website is the enrolment form – as long as we can get at least 4 of you signed up (enough for an expedition team) we can arrange the necessary practice and assessed expeditions as we have done many time successfully in the past
Check out the camps section for all the information about Borough Camp and Summer Camp – please make sure that you take action by the appropriate deadlines.
We start back on Monday 24th April – as this is the first meeting of the month you should come in uniform and take the opportunity to make sure that you have all the badges that you should have.
As mentioned at the last meeting we will be taking part in the Chestnut Sunday Parade (14 May) instead of St. George’s Day – please make sure you have uniform by then.
We currently have two camps planned for the summer – Borough Camp in July and Summer Camp in August.
Check our facebook group for a poll/discussion about what camps you would like to do for the remainder of 2017 – with so many new explorers we need to get outdoors more and do some “proper” scouting!!
All explorers should also have the rugby shirt which is only available from me.
Just a reminder that we are starting back on Monday 16th January – also, we will be Air Rifle Shooting the following week – make sure that you bring a signed permission to shoot form with you on the night – NO FORM – NO SHOOTING. (see News section for more details)
We will be selecting the highest scorers to represent the unit in the District Competition in March.
Information re camps planned is also in the Camps section
Don’t forget we are taking part in the Remembrance Day Parade in Hampton on Sunday 13th November. Smart uniform please. Check emails and facebook for timings.
You are expected to take part!!
Please make sure you check the facebook group for details of the events coming up – also just added a District Monopoly Run Competition – check the News tab and facebook for more details
