Summer Camp 2017

AJ17 Summer Camp

Summer camp at the Auchengillan jamboree was enjoyed by all the scouts and explorers who attended with some describing it as the best camp ever. It was wet, it was sunny, it was misty so a typical Scottish summer. AJ17 had a very international make-up, with scouting friends from Weurt, near Nijmegen, Netherlands, sharing our camp. Amongst other things the scouts enjoyed an outdoor pool party, a foam party and a paint party. Photos are on our flickr group, with more to follow.

May Camp 2017

The troop had its May camp in Fordell Firs this year. We were able to complete a lot of the outdoor challenge including making camp gadgets, tent pitching and cooking a meal on an open fire.

183rd Scouts tested out the new bothy at Auchengillan this weekend. These bothies will be a great resource for patrol camps, expedition challanges and other small group activities.

Once again, the 183rd Scouts hold the Camping Competition trophy for the Great Western district. Well done to everyone who put themselves forward, the next challenge is the zonal competition!

We have now held the trophy continuously for 20 years – here is the team photo from 1997 – see anyone you know?
