1st Finchampstead was out in force at the Three Towers Hike on Saturday 5th April. The hike is a hike around the Berkshire Downs, with routes of 25km for the Scout teams, 45km for the Explorer Scout teams and 70km for the Leader teams.
The Scout Troop was out over the Easter break on Eastrek, a hike camp invented by the Leaders. In winds, snow and rain, 15 Scouts, plus a number of Explorer Scouts on an associated Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expedition, went on a hike along the Kennet and Avon Canal from Bath back towards home.
Circus Scene visited Leopards Cub Scout pack this Tuesday to finish the term with a night at the circus. Juggling, balancing and cycle riding was on th emenu and many of the Cubs found that skills which they thought were impossible can be achieved by them.
Our Group Camp at Cricket Campsite is fast approaching and it’s going to be HUGE! – we have a total of 152 people signed up!
This is a major Wokingham District event
and we are asking for as many people as possible to attend. We will meet
in the Market Square in the town centre at 1.45pm. This is followed by a parade to the church, finishing by approximately 3pm.
Finchampstead Scout Group is pleased to announce its group camp, to be held
over the early May bank holiday weekend.
All sections will be welcome (Beavers on a day visit on Sunday), as are
Finchampstead Guide Units.
Do you have plans for the Easter weekend – No! Then
join us on our hike along the Kennet and Avon Canal.
Camp is now only 2 weeks away and, in addition to over 130 people camping for the whole weekend, we are also looking forward to welcoming some of the Beavers as day visitors on Sunday 4 May.
With camp only a week away now it’s time for a reminder of the kit list!
For those who haven’t been to Camp before, this is a fairly standard camp kit list. Please make sure that all items are clearly labelled and, in the case of cutlery, plates etc, marked in such a way as to withstand washing-up.
