Gower Adventure for Local Scouts

14 August 2018

In July the leader teams from 21st (Larkhall) and 23rd (Batheaston and Bathford) Scouts joined forces to take 21 Scouts on a 7 day camp to the Gower in Wales at the Parc-le-Breos scout campsite about 20 minutes walk from the Three Cliffs Bay beach.

The sea played a major part in activities during the week with a full afternoon of Coasteering (climbing sea cliffs and jumping into the sea), a treasure hunt to the beach, and on the final day, a surfing lesson for the Scouts.

 

“The best part of camp this year was joining in with the coasteering andhelping the scouts. Some of the scouts found the heights difficult and helping
them overcome these fears with the Coasteering leader team was incredibly
rewarding. Everybody had their comfort zone extended during that activity
(including me) and everyone left the cliffs with immense satisfaction and pride
in what they had done” Said Roger Chandler, Scout Leader.

This year was the first time the two troops had combined for a camp and it proved to be a great success. Each Patrol contained members from both   Groups and gave the
Scouts an opportunity to make new friends whilst enjoying fun and adventure under canvas and cooking everyday on woodfires.
