Into 2022 with our 57 Highlights and Challenge

We're 57 years old this year and we want to celebrate getting back to more normal Scout activities

 

Why 57 - it's not normally a special birthday? Well, it's half our Scout Group number (114) and it's well-known for canned food varieties - so that seems like two good enough reasons for us!

 

We've selected photographs of 57 key moments or activities from our history. They're in this slide show. There are so many great moments, it was a difficult choice. But now, our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers will be tackling various activities and challenges throughout the year, all with some connection to these 57 Highlights or to number 57. And that will be in addition to all their usual great activities, so it's going to be a busy year! Check back here regularly to see how they're getting on.

 

Here are our 57 Highlights

Here are some of our recent adventures!

Scout and Explorer Wintercamp2022

Weekend Camp

February 2022

 

Wintercamp returned after 24 months! In 2020 it was our last big event before lockdown. This year, twenty Scouts and Explorers spent the weekend at Fordell Firs, staying in the newer indoor accommodation building.

 

A really busy weekend followed - with wide games, firelighting and backwoods cooking, archery, climbing wall, Jacobs Ladder, tree climbing, paperclip game, 57 Highlights show and a movie.

The Troop are ready to hand over the donations

57 Challenge

Scouts launch year with Food Bank Collection

January 2022

 

Our Scout Troop completed their first 57 Challenge activity by setting a target to collect at least 57 items for donation to Dunfermline Food Bank. 

 

We're pleased to report that they collected many more items than the 57 target, so well done to all of them!

We made it through the night!

One-Night Activity Camp

December 2021

 

Our second one-night activity camp. This time with a festive flavour - christmas cake, pulling crackers and even a visit from Santa! To cap it all, it snowed as we packed up camp on Saturday!

 

Activities included sessions of archery and crate-climbing along with a firelighting session on the Friday evening.

Beavers and Cubs Weekend Camp

Astronaut Adventures

November 2021

 

Our regular annual Beaver and Cub Indoor Weekend returned in November as more than 30 youngsters took part in their first weekend away for two years.

 

The theme for the weekend was Astronaut Adventures - taking the youngsters out of this world with all sorts of space-themed activities. Great to be back - who needs Virgin Galactic anyway!

Ready for the tower!

Scouts and Explorers

One-Night Activity Camp

November 2021

 

Scouts and Explorers returned to Fordell on the same weekend as the Beavers and Cubs for the first of their one-night activity camps. 11 young people set up tents on Friday night, enjoyed a very active games session in the Activities Hall, then on Saturday morning tried climbing and the 3G swing - perhaps you heard the screams?

In brief ...

F1 almost!

Scouts try out the diddy karts at Fordell Firs.
