Youth-led Investitures

Youth-led Investitures. At Wild Wolf ESU you have to recite all of your Scout Laws and your Scout Promise by heart during your investiture.

A Wild Weekend

Wales, wild camping, and walking? Sounds like a great way to spend a few days, as some of our Explorers found out this weekend… The trip began with a long drive and, as is camp tradition, the whole bus joined in singing along to ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. However, apparently arriving at nearly midnight doesn’t warrant access […]

However, we did get to see some amazing films of these activities done on a crazy scale, which is pretty much the next best thing, right?

Leaders have a Wales of a time

Here they’ve written about the experience… TUESDAY  We met at a crowded Euston Station at 8pm on Tuesday evening, to board the Caledonian Sleeper train. As we walked to […]
