Congratulations to our Oakdene Explorer unit that sent two teams to this year’s Peak Assault #PeakAssault #HPA2015 #CCHertsScouts
The secret location this year was Howgill fells in the northwest corner of the Yorkshire Dales, north of Sedbergh.
With their rather fetching lime green Peak Camp 2015 T’s and their own Peak Camp scarf, the scouts, leaders and honorary scouts look like they are getting into the spirit!
It is an extraordinary week for our Scout Group and Scouting all over the world.
This week sees the start of the 23rd World Scout Jamboree in Yamaguchi City, Japan. A once in 5-year event where 4000 scouts from around the UK will join thousands from all around the world. And in there somewhere are 5 scouts from the 16th! Good luck to Ben Clarke, Ben Robinson, Ollie Hobs, Ross Ferreria and Aoife Linzell.
Exciting as Japan is, the UK also is also holding its parallel Jamboree event this Week – Peak Camp. No less than 7000 scouts descend on the Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire for an incredible week of fun and activities. We are sending a group of 14 scouts and explorers plus 3 leaders there for 7 nights of amazing adventure.
Today also saw Bear Grylls fly-in, in his signature style to say hello to the scouts at Peak.
All the best,
your new web-admin, Assif
We took 35 Scouts and Explorers to Winter Camp this year. Some pictures of what we got up to are in the gallery, but the big question of the weekend was which type of camping do you like best – muddy or sunny?
I am very pleased to announce that 4 current and former Scouts from 16th St Albans will be going to the World Scout Jamboree in Kirara-hama, Japan. Congratulations to Oliver Hobbs, Ben Robinson, Ben Clarke and Ross Ferriera on their selection. They will be among 10 from St Albans and 3,000 from the UK. The Jamboree will run from 28 July to 8 August 2015.
