2016 Update

All sections of the Group have been very active over the last 6 months:

Beavers – Have been out on Dartmoor with the local Park Ranger, in Yarner Woods and building dens, and a canoeing session on Decoy Lake. Changes in the Leadership team means that Caroline is now running the section, with support from Jo, Emma & Laura

Cubs – Went on a very successful activity camp at Barton Hall in May, had a street party for the Queen’s 90th Birthday and joined the Beavers canoeing at Decoy.

Scouts – Had a winter Camp for the older Scouts in February (in very wet weather!), learnt about Scouting in Sierre Leone, plenty of cooking and campfires, March March (overnight hike and camp on Dartmoor), canoeing at Ugbrooke Lake and raft building. In addition at the annual Hurdlestone Challenge they had the best ever results recorded with teams in 2nd, 3rd and 6th out of 74 teams. A very successful survival camp was held in July with all of the Scouts building their shelters from natural materials and sleeping in them overnight.

Explorers – Many outdoor activities including Clip’n’Climb, iBounce, shooting and camp cooking. The Dartmoor Beast Explorer Unit has now joined forces with Bovey Gateway Explorers and is now being run as a District Unit. We wish them well!
