Bringing adventure back

Date: 7th Dec 2021 Author: Angela Rumsey

Since September the focus for 51st Bath Scouts has been on getting out and about, exploring new places and finding new adventures. And what an adventure-filled few months it’s been!

During our weekly programme of events we’ve looked at how to survive and enjoy outdoor adventures. We learnt how to make our own stoves out of tin cans, practised setting up tents and shelters at the Cleeve Hill site, had an evening of outdoor games at Royal Victoria Park and went for a night-time hike on the outskirts of Bath. 

In early October, members from across our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts divisions spent nights away in central Bath where they explored the world of aviation and earned their Air Activities badges. 

During November, we learnt how to use knives safely and how to make useful items such as tent pegs and cutlery out of wood. 

We also spent a Saturday afternoon at the climbing wall in Bristol where members of all ages enjoyed being pushed out of their comfort zones and embracing their spirit of adventure. 

As we head towards Christmas, we’re looking forward to our traditional Group-wide meeting for some ice-skating fun. 

It has been an incredible few months. Check out the pictures to see more.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
