Apologies for being a little late with our 2016 camp details. It’s taken a little longer than expected.
For our 2016 adventure we are planning a week long camp at a site we haven’t used before, it’s called Beaudesert Park and its located in Staffordshire. The site is a giant 132 acres in size and is used by Scout Groups and other youth organisations. We have booked the Lodge, which will provide comfortable indoor accommodation during our stay.
There are a wide range of activities on site including: Climbing, Raft Building, Pedal Go Karts, Low Ropes Course and many more, which we will be taking part in.
We also intend to do plenty of off site visits too, those we are planning include: Alton Towers, RAF Cosford, Black Country Museum and Waterworld.
Full details here.
Over the weekend of the 10. – 11. October 2015, Cubs and Scouts from the Group walked the Bayr Ny Skeddan (Herring Way) from Peel to Castletown, a distance of about fifteen miles. The Cub Scouts hiked over two days, stopping at the Round Table on the Saturday afternoon and starting again on the Sunday morning. The Scouts completed the hike in just one day. Well done to all those who took part.
We have added a new feature to our website, which shows the badges our members have gained and are currently working on. The information is always up to date as it takes the information directly from Online Scout Manager which most of our Sections use. No personal Information is shown other than a surname and initial for each member. At the moment we only have one Section active (Phoenix Scout Troop) but hopefully our other Sections will soon join in.
You can access the Badge Records in the top menu or by clicking here.
The Nominations for the various trophies that will be presented at the Groups Awards Night on the 9. October 2015 have now been released. The Awards Night is open to all members and their families and even those who haven’t been nominated this year are encouraged to attend.
We will also be showing a slide show of what the Group has been up to over the last twelve months.
The Awards Night takes place at our Scout Headquarters on School Road, Onchan and starts at 7.30pm on Friday 9. October 2015.
It’s only a few weeks now until the Group Camp at the Crossags in Ramsey. Below you will find letters for Cubs and Scouts and a separate letter for Beaver Scouts who are either coming for the day or staying overnight.
The Medical Form must be completed and bought along by all those who are staying overnight. The Kit List is for those who are also staying overnight.
Scouts bringing their own tents, if they wish can come along to the Crossags Camp Site on the Thursday evening (24. September) between 19:30 and 20:00 to set up their tents. Leaders will be in attendance.
