Stepping out

forward 2016

Two intrepid teams of 12th Cambridge scouts braved the elements in FORWARD 2016, the 10-mile incident hike organised by Cambridge University Scout and Guide Club.

With the forecast for rain all day (thankfully, a little pessimistic) and a biting northerly wind & hail showers failing to deter our young teams, the scouts embraced all the challenges set for them by the organisers (who themselves had to fend off hypothermia).weather


In addition to the hike, there were 7 checkpoints with challenges including csemaphoreode-breaking, semaphore, an observation quiz, shepherding (yes, seriously!) and spaghetti-bridge-building.

Well done to all our scouts for completing the challenge safely and with enthusiasm!
