Rock Climbing Weekend

Rock Climbing Weekend 2010
Dear Explorer,
This year we will be going rock climbing for the weekend. We will be going on Friday 30th April at 1630hrs and returning on Monday 3rd May at 1900hrs for 3 nights.
During the weekend we will be taking part in Rock Climbing, Abseiling and some hillwalking. We will be aiming to satisfy all of the requirements of the Explorer scout climbers badge, or if you already have your climbers badge, we will be setting you some personal targets to gain your activity plus award for your climber badge.
We have decided to travel to Dartmoor National Park for the weekend, and will be climbing on Dartmoors granite tors. Climbing on granite is a very different experience to the climbing we have done in the past on local rock and limestone.
We will be camping for the weekend, and we will give out a kit list and more information nearer the time.
The cost of the weekend will be £55.00, this will include.

  • Return transport to and from Dartmoor National Park.
  • Campsite fees for 3 nights.
  • All meals.
  • Climbing equipment and instruction.

Please note that places on this trip are strictly limited, so If you would like to come please fill in the attached form and return it to me as soon as possible. You can post it to me, and my address is at the end of this letter.

RN Recognition

On Monday 22nd March, our partner group 1st Corsham Sea Scouts & ourselves were inspected by the Royal Navy.
Our inspection went well, and we are now a Sea Scout Group, recognised by the admiralty. We are RN recognised group number 43.
This has many benifits, and we can now wear the RN pennant with pride.
