A very adventerous week for this troop. They made it all the way to the Peak District and climbed some very impressive rock faces.

Delta Force Paintballing Romsey Scouts

Scouts Paint-balling Day

Posted on Monday, February 5th, 2018

Last weekend, over 40 Scouts and leaders spent the day blasting paint-balls at each other at Delta-Force in Romsey. Young people from the 2nd, 7th, 13th, 14th and 29th took part in 12 team games ranging from defending castles, protecting the president in an apocalyptic London and surviving a zombie invasion.

It was a great day of working together, meeting other people from local groups and having the opportunity to shoot paint at each other for fun. We were blessed with a sunny and dry day, although it was pretty chilly.

Well done to everyone who took part. We had some wonderful feedback from the organisers to say that the Scouts were all brilliantly behaved and got really stuck in with the games.  Follow the link below to see some of the photos we took on the day.
