Canal Boating 2015

8 Scouts and 3 leaders from Hatherley set of to Barby Marina near Rugby to pick up the narrow boat Centenary. Starting off down the Oxford canal we travelled a total of 80 miles and open and closed 104 locks. Apart from running the boat, the Scouts also cooked the meals. All the Scouts attained their power coxswain badge as well as working towards other badges.

August 2015 Camp

A Cub and Scout camp was held in the Forest of Dean. We had 40 Cubs, Scouts and leaders, including 8 Scouts from the Salvation Army. Activities included backwoods cooking, string trail, compass work, saw & axe, and pioneering. The Cubs in teams rose early to cook breakfast each day with the Scouts team doing evening meals, all overseen by a leader.

As well as getting some extra nights for their nights away badges, most have completed their Outdoor Challenge badge. Even with the weather not being kind, all enjoyed the camp!
