New Scout Troop – 2 weeks to go!

It’s 2 weeks today til the 12th Cambridge launches its second Scout Troop!

Over the last two months we’ve used the weekly updates to set out some of the events for next term – including the “Sun Run” overnight hike in June; the Troop camp in July; and the main Summer Camp in August.  Once we’re up and running in April, we’ll be inviting bookings for those events (this is managed through a simple online system called OSM, and there’ll be more details sent out about this soon).

There are also a couple of places spare on a go-karting activity which the Thursday night Troop has arranged for Sunday 17 May.  This costs £25, and anyone who might be interested is welcome to email for more details.  We’re putting this out now, rather than waiting until our first meeting, as space is genuinely limited.

We’ll also shortly be confirming a Wednesday around the Whitsun half-term when we’ll meet at a local campsite rather than the Scout hut, for outdoor games, camp-fire, and more.


Next week we’ll give a flavour of the programme for  Wednesday 15 April and the first couple of meetings, as well as reminding everyone about the practicalities – meeting times, what to bring (don’t worry, not much!), etc.  But if there are any questions now, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Events to look forward to…

  • Archery competition camp: Friday 8 to Sunday 10 May
  • Go-karting: Sunday 17 May
  • Sun Run (night hike): Saturday 20 to Sunday 21 June
  • Troop camp: Friday 10 to Sunday 12 July
  • Summer Camp: Tuesday 18 to Monday 24 August
