Hope you are all enjoying the Half Term Holiday.

Just a reminder that applications to join the weekend camp at Harrogate on 24th June must be in by Friday 10th June at the latest.  But, why wait?  Scouts starts back after the holiday this Friday, 3rd June, so why not bring your form and money in then?

If you are going to camp, you can download a suggested kit list from the Useful Forms page of this web site.  Just click on the ‘Kit List – Weekend camp spring-summer’ link.

The camp is going to be a great adventure, and a chance to learn new, and practice your current, scouting skills as well as work towards some of the badges.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Weekend Camp 24th June 2011

We will be holding a weekend camp between Friday 24th June and Sunday 26th June at Fulwith Mill Farm in Harrogate.

Please follow the links below to download the letter and permission form that you will need to reserve a place on the camp.

We camped on this site last year and had a fantastic weekend, so we are certain to have a great time again.  MAKE SURE YOU DON’T MISS OUT…!

It is especially important for all those attending Summer Camp as it is perfect practice before the big one in the summer.  If you are going to summer camp, please make sure you come on this weekend.  It is, of course though, open to everyone. 

A suggested kit list can be found on the ‘Useful Forms’ page of this web site.  Please return the form and payment by 10th June.

Lifting the torch for 1st BR

On Friday 6th May, Scouts from across Wharfedale competed in the annual Torch Race up Otley Chevin.

The Torch Race is a relay race run which starts from the clock tower in Otley town centre, and goes straight up the hill to the top of Otley Chevin.  The winning team is the first team to ‘break’ the flag at the top.

1st Ben Rhydding fielded a team for the race, and we are delighted to say that we WON!!!  Not only that, but the Troop were also awarded the ‘Smartest Troop’ award for the pre-race inspection.

Congratulations to all who took part.
