Scouts shine at activity hike

Posted on Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

Hello Autumn! You simply can’t beat spending time in the forest at this time of year. The changing of the seasons brings about some stunning colours and wildlife. We love it and the Scouts section makes the most of it by holding many activity days in The New Forest this term, starting with Maddison Hunt.

Earlier this month, teams of Scouts aged between 10.5 and 12.5 hiked around Wilverley Inclosure. Along the way they stumbled across challenges to complete by working as a team and using their initiative and skills.

This year we made pancakes, built towers, constructed bridges and administered first-aid. The sun shined and our young people outshone themselves… Well done.

Congratulations to everyone who took part! It’s a huge achievement. This years Trophy was won by 1st Aldermoor.ctytljgwiaazbyj

Could you survive a weekend in the forest with just your friends?

Posted on Monday, June 20th, 2016

Last weekend 8 teams of Scouts from across our district spent 2 nights away camping in the forest without any adult assistance.

Emlyn Camp takes place each year with the aim for young people aged 10.5 to 14 to survive a weekend away with their friends as a group of 4, 5 or 6.

This year we held the camp at Braggers Wood in Bransgore. On the Friday night Scouts arrived from Highfield, Milbrook, Shirley, Freemantle, Aldermoor, Portswood and Regent’s Park. Scouts had to pitch their entire site, cook for themselves and took part in some outdoor challenges to promote teamwork.

Completing Emlyn camp is a huge achievement for everyone who takes part. Not only is the camp a lot of fun, but everyone who takes part learns so much by working as a team with their peers to successfully live and cook together (and hopefully in harmony too).

Emlyn Camp also awards trophies which date back many decades. Teams were given scores throughout the weekend based on their teamwork, cooking and challenges. Well done to 29th Portswood Immaculata who took home the Overall Emlyn Trophy and well done to 1st Aldermoor who won the Scout Challenges Trophy. We also awarded a brand new Judges Choice award this year to 22nd Southamtpon for making considerable progress as a new team.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you to all the adults who helped make the camp a success.
