My name's Erin and I want to share my adventure to the 24th World Scout Jamboree with you. I’m not sure whether anyone’s actually going to read this but here I go…. I’ve been in scouts since I was 6 years old and it’s grown to be a kind of widespread family for me. I’ve … Continue reading Hey world!
So it's a month before we go to the 24th World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. Scary right? We've spent a year and a half fundraising, meeting up and preparing for the jamboree and now it's all nearly over! On Friday 31st of May, we canoed across Derwent water from Kettlewell car park to Withesike … Continue reading Last ever training meeting!
It's one thing to do a cake sale, but it's another to do a cake sale on a mountain. However, that's what we did on the 6th April. Instead of just doing a bake sale or a hike, we combined them together! We decided that we should do something a bit more exciting for a … Continue reading Catbells Cake-sale
We have now made over £100,000!!!! Only £20,000 to go!!
I've always enjoyed playing Monopoly. Me and my family can play it for days on end if we get really competitive and it's now traditional for us to play it at New Year. My younger brother always wins, that's a guarantee, but it's still loads of fun! However, I never thought that one day I … Continue reading Alternative Monopoly Run 2019
On the 23rd Feb, I took a big step in life that I never thought I would actually take.... I got my hair cut to donate to charity! A whole 15 " of it! The hairdresser who cut it was shocked when I showed her how much I wanted cut and said that I was … Continue reading Getting my hair cut!!
On Monday the 18th of February 2019, over half term, me and the other Unit 41 members met up at Heysham ferry port. We got on the ferry and waited 4 hours as we travelled to the Isle of Man. I know it was just a ferry ride, but I had the most fun I've … Continue reading First ever Manx trip!
In my opinion, you can never feel more relaxed than dangling on a rope half way down a building, don't you agree? Just kidding!!! I absolutely hate heights and abseiling isn't my first choice if I could do anything I wanted at the weekend. But somehow I found myself abseiling down the side of Carslile … Continue reading A spiderman turned up to abseil!
Hmmmm, sounds like a good mix for a scout camp, doesn't it? Well at least I think so. To be honest, we weren't expecting our August training meeting in Rattlingate to go like this..... It was August the 29th, the weather a big grey wall of sky with occasional cracks where the sun would shine … Continue reading Cubs, bonfires and a Mexican sombrero!
Sometimes it's nice to have a break from all of the madness and just have fun with friends, don't you think? So that's why my parents organised for the whole Unit 41 to have an adventure day together so that we could get to know each other more and learn some team-building skills. Unfortunately, some … Continue reading Unit adventure day
