Scouts on tour!

It is nearly time for our intrepid scouts to leave for their extraordinary adventure to the beautiful Swiss town on Kandersteg to a Scout Camp with a difference.

I’ll try to update this page with updates and pictures.

Watch this space!


Peak Assault

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.


Looks as if our Peak-camp scouts are having a brilliant time – plenty of good weather. Enough at least to take a few pics (thanks Kerry!).

Here they are in their Ice-age branded T’s.

And, here they are having some tasty Mammoth Sausages 😉

Peak Camp – they really are there!

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!

Are you sure they are not at Glastonbury?

Peak Camp and World Scout Jamboree

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.

There are pictures available at the facebook and twitter pages of Peak Camp – but so far I’ve not been able to spot our scouts, see if you can do better!

All the best,

your new web-admin, Assif

World Scout Jamboree 2015, Japan

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.

They each need to raise over £3,000 to fund the trip and the Group will be working with them on the fundraising.
