October was a special month for many members in the Group. Older Scouts moved up to the Explorer Section, Older Cubs got invested into the troop and four Chief Scouts awards were presented by Anne Law, our District Commissioner. Well done and best wishes for your future in Scouting! 

Camping Competition 2017

Another great achievement for the troop, coming 3rd in the National Finals of the Camping Competition. Well done to all involved, with a huge amount of effort given in difficult conditions.

The team also had a celebratory meal together once the dust had settled!

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.
