Sponsored Abseil at Youlbury

Posted on August 29th, 2016 by Steve McCarthy

It seems a long time ago now, but back in January, we completed our 24 hour sponsored abseil

Everyone was amazing, we had volunteers abseil from age 5 to age 70.

We survived, a never ending night, mud, so much mud, snow, ice, sun, rain, yes we had it all.

The guys and girls who abseiled through the night did amazingly well to keep it going.

It was all worth while , we made a total of £5k.


Well done !

12.5 & Over Camp 2016

Posted on August 29th, 2016 by Steve McCarthy

At the end of June, 2 boats worth of Scouts & Explorers spent the weekend on the Grand Union canal.

We went through a grand total of 46 locks on a highly successful weekend.

The weather was kind and we got all the way to Leamington Spa where we explored before going a BBQ on the side of the river

Summer Camp 2016

Posted on August 29th, 2016 by Carl Gaskell

Phew!! What a week!
We’ve all just returned from our annual Summer Camp, this year held near Brecon in South Wales.

The Summer Camp is one of our favourite camps each year. It combines both the Scout and Explorer sections at 3rd Reading, and being a week long, provides us with plenty of premium activities and opportunities for fun.

This camp was no exception, with White Water Rafting, Caving, Gorge Walking, Air Rifle Shooting, a visit to (and under!) Ystradfellte Waterfalls, Swimming, Funfairs, beach BBQs, cooking competitions, and of course the ever-popular Party Night, which this year went with a ‘Bling’ theme.

This years camp was a ‘Green field’ camp, which was fabulous and really took us back-to-basics – just a tap on a farmers field for clean water, and a nearby stream to paddle in. We were under canvass for everything… including the bathrooms! But the Scouts and Explorers loved it, and as the weather was reasonably kind to us too, we had plenty time to enjoy the sun and the great outdoors.

And now for a well-earned summer break… see you in the Autumn!!
