Looking down into the caves!

Underground camping!

 

Explorer Scouts recently spent a night in the artificial caving complex at Fordell Firs.

 

Why, you might ask? It's all part of the Zodiac Plus Challenge - basically to spend a night per calendar month in a different, unusual or challenging location.

 

This completed the October challenge for some of our Explorers - although sleeping with those hard hats on was an even bigger challenge!

Trainspotting in York!

October Discover York Camp

 

Youngsters from the Scout Group were in York during the October holidays. No Royal visits this time, but they did meet Mallard (right) - the world's fastest ever steam locomotive.

 

The plan was to Discover York, so in addition to the National Railway Museum, the group visited Yorkshire Air Museum, York Castle and Museum, had a shopping session in York city centre and a whole day in Flamingo Land theme park.

One of many activities to try out

Adventures in Science: Big Day Out to Glasgow Science Centre

 

Around 80 youngsters and adults visited the Glasgow Science Centre as our final Big Day Out for 2016.

 

With dozens of hands-on experiments and activities, a movie in the Planetarium and a great shop, this is a full-on day trip for everyone - especially for the Leaders as they try to keep a watchful eye on fast-moving youngsters!

Leaders run away to join the circus!!

This way to the circus!

 

Our end-of-summer weekend camp at Fordell Firs gained an unexpected programme activity as our 32 Scouts and Explorers were able to go to the circus.

 

A circus skills training camp had been at Fordell for the week before our camp and we were lucky enough to be able to attend the end of the week show. Jugglers, acrobats, gymnasts and comedy were all part of the Saturday night show.

 

 

Our Scouts meet HRH The Earl of Wessex

Summer Lochgoilhead Adventure Camp and Royal visitor

 

Our Summer Adventure Activity camp took place at The Lochgoilhead Centre. Owned and operated by Scouts Scotland, this was a camp on "home turf" and the 24 Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, along with six adult Leaders, enjoyed an action-packed five days.

 

For some of the group, there was a chance to meet HRH The Earl of Wessex who was visiting the site as part of the 60th anniversary celebrations for the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

 

Our Explorer Scouts took part in a raft building race and challenge against teams representing Girl Guides, Boys Brigade, Girls Brigade, Cadet Force 62 (2nd Glasgow) Squadron Air Training Corps and Dunoon OAG Argyll and Bute Council officially started by HRH The Earl of Wessex. We came third!

 

 

100 years of Cub Scouting

 

2016 marks the 100th anniversary of Cub Scouts (called Wolf Cubs back then) and our lucky 8-10 year-olds have been taking part in a whole range of exciting activities.

 

One of our Cubs, Owen, designed the District Badge used throughout Dunfermline for the year. Activities have included a huge Grand Howl event at Queen Anne School; a fun day at East End Park football ground and a special showing of Disney's "The Jungle Book" at the Odeon Cinema - and there's more to come!

Scouts and Explorers on Dublin Expedition

 

International expeditions don't need to travel around the globe.

 

Our 2016 April Expedition saw 24 Scouts, Explorers and Leaders travel to Dublin - in just 50 minutes flying time!

 

Staying at Larch Hill International Scout & Guide Centre, the group spent the week visiting Dublin and taking part in activities at the camp site.
