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.

Explorer Weekend Camp at Fordell Firs

September 2021

 

The Explorer Unit organised our first camp back in September - nine young people enjoying a weekend under canvas at Fordell Firs.

 

Some great weather made the daytime, outdoor activities very enjoyable, although heavy rain through Saturday night into Sunday morning was a bit of shock!

 

Activities during the weekend included wide games, firelighting and backwoods cooking plus some big-scale pioneering - including a giant swing and a giant table! Healthy eating didn't feature in our camp donuts session and we had the return of our traditional big prize bingo and non-stop cricket games!

Climbing the crate stack

Summer Adventure Week

August 2021

 

We couldn't get a Summer Camp ready for the Scouts and Explorers, but we were able to organise Adventure Week:

 

  • Challenge Course and Abseiling
  • Caving and Climbing
  • Zip Line and Archery
  • Crate Climb and Firelighting
  • Explorer Day Hike
  • Two day trips to Blair Drummond Safari Park

 

It was very popular, with dozens of youngsters taking part over the seven days. Our first sessions on the Fordell Zip Line were very exciting, a group of Explorers were able to reach the summit of Dumyat Hill, near Stirling and two separate minibus trips to Blair Drummond Safari Park became "mini days out" and great fun.

It's amazing how much water is retained in moss

Scout Activity Hike

Blair Adam Forest

July 2021

 

Group of Scouts took part in a day hike through Blair Adam forest, near Kelty. Along the way they completed a variety of challenges and activities. These included map and compass work, using lightweight stoves to make hot drinks, setting up a hammock and tarp shelter and reaching the top of Cowden Hill to enjoy the amazing views over Loch Leven and the surrounding area. They also found out about some of the history and nature of the area.

The great outdoors!
