We have finally learnt how to light fires!

We have completed a number of night hikes, developing navigation skills.

We have made shelters, had camp fires and toasted lots of marshmallows.

We have undertaken a few cooking activities to develop our taste buds .... and gain our cook badge.

We have been to PGL Osmington Bay and undertaken sea kayaking, abseiling, giant swing, jacobs ladder and learnt some new wide games.

We attended our first International trip to NIJAM in Northern Ireland.




The Scouts learnt some great Bushcraft skills from Jamie Gilbert from 1st Portishead Scouts - showing them how to make shelters, light fires and work with knives.  A little foraging completed a great morning of activities.

9 Scouts and 4 Leaders went to PGL Hillcrest in Herefordshire.  The centre was brilliant and the Scounts enjoyed climbing, zip wire, quad biking, raft building, muddy challenge course (mud fight), shooting and problem solving.  The Leaders were thrilled with how many of the Scouts overcame their fears of height and went for it on the zip wire!

Scouts camped at Rocks East - it was great fun and gave the news Scouts a chance to settle into the Troop.  The Scouts made catapults and played water bomb volleyball!


We had great fun learning about axes and saws.  The Scouts made wooden tent pegs.

The turn out for the Remembrance Parade was fantastic with all the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts marching with Colerne Royal British Legion.

The Scouts have made their Guys for Bonfire Night - interesting as we had no clothes for them!  The yellow Guy is Homer Simpson!


The Scouts had their first night - a short route down to the Trout lakes in Colerne.  The purpose of our hike was to collect wood for make gifts for the Christmas Fair and to develop our wood carving skills.  There was much enthusiasm about collecting the wood and a few Scouts managed to return to the HQ with some rather long branches!  These all went towards the Scouts Craft Badge and Creative Challenge Badge.


Although we did not break the Penny Mile World Record, we managed to raise over £1000 as a result of all the hard work of the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and friends of 1st Colerne Scouts who collected 1p coins for this challenge!  Well done!
