Our Great Avon Adventure

Date: 31st May 2016 Author: Scout Websites

Last weekend, our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts joined with over 4,000 other young people from across Avon County at Avon Jamboree 2016. It was an action-packed weekend with activities for every interest and at every point in the day.

Throughout the weekend, our members enjoyed canoeing, climbing, woodcraft, Segways, circus skills, bungee runs, raft building, golf, air rifle shooting, 4x4s… the list goes on and on. Not only were there activities during the day, but the evenings were filled with various kinds of entertainments – from silent discos to films, games to sitting down and chatting.

“As the first residential that I’ve been able to bring all three sections of the Group to, I am extremely pleased with what we can offer everyone. You can’t walk three metres without hearing the laughter of young people or seeing them beaming from ear to ear. It’s a wonderful atmosphere.” – Ashley Russell, Group Scout Leader

All our members had an absolutely incredible time and we can’t wait for our next adventure!

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