THIS PAGE CONTAINS INFORMATION AND PICTURES OF SOME OF OUR MANY ACTIVITIES.
During Summer camp we usually tackle a national river with canoes, kayaks and boats which are not often seen away from the sea or from lakes. It is an adventure and a challenge for all taking part
Camp is not the only time for fun and games. Every weekend there is at least one activity organised by the troop for members of all ages.
Each year we run a Parents Day, the parents of the scouts get to watch thier sons and daughters take part in a number of competitions, not least of which is the grueling Obsticle Course, while they contemplate the clean-up later on.
Canoeing and kayaking togeather with rowing are some of our most central activities. They provide fun and excitment for all involved.
Rowing requires more discipline and teamwork than canoeing but can be a very rewarding activity for the crews prepared to train to racing standard.
Every year over the Christmas season we hold a number of annual events. They are The Christmas Hike (formerly known as The Old Boys Hike), The Christmas Day Swim (a very quick 50m swim) and The Vulcan Run (a sponsored 10km run on the Bull Island organised by the Vulcan Wrestling Club). These events never fail to put some scouting cheer into the Christmasses of all those who take part.
