3rd Banstead Scouts Return to Longridge

Date: 28th Aug 2018 Author: Scout Websites

Seventeen scouts from Churchill and Marlborough Troops attended a three night camp at Longridge Activity Centre Located on the River Thames at Marlow.
Longridge is located on a back-water channel providing a safe environment for paddling, free from River traffic on the main channel.

The Scouts took part in kayaking, bell boating, rafting, dragon boating and climbing activities over the course of the weekend.

The Scouts cooked their meals in the Patrols on the Saturday and had a camp fire in the evening. The weather on the Sunday was poor, with rain most of the day, but the Scouts continued to have fun on the water regardless. As the afternoon was so wet, the Scouts were treated to a Pizza supper, before an early night after a busy day of activities.

All those who attended achieved their Stage 1 Paddlesports Badge, 3 Nights Away and additional Time on the Water badges.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
