Saturday evening kayak/canoe film shows/fun shows including supply of popcorn.
You will receive sessions on the water in both kayak and canoe. Plus "Try a Kayak" session should be available Sunday 18th supplied by Canoe and Kayak Store Berkeley.

Preparation towards British Canoeing Star Testing will take place with our  coaches/skills instructors.

Do you know your Scout Laws? No.1 - A Scout is to be trusted...
...Read the rest here...


BACK to BASICS appeared in Scouting Magazine many years ago as a pullout supplement and is worth its weight in gold.

Very hard to find such a comprehensive easy to follow guide to what Basic Scouting knowledge is all about.

 In the words of John Sweet, author of the book Scout Pioneering, 
" these are the kind of skills which, if we are not careful, will slip unnoticed down the cracks in the pavement of Life. "

Why Scout Movement?
Baden-Powell said: "Scouting is a movement because it keeps on moving forward. 
If it stops moving it becomes an organisation and is no longer Scouting!"

Why 'PEN-KNIFE'? asked a young Scout. Its not a pen.
quill.jpg (2023 bytes)
    swiss-knife.jpg (1990 bytes)
It was during a session in June 2005 teaching Scouts about the safe use of Knife, Axe and Bowsaw that James, a young Scout, popped this question, on showing them a Swiss penknife.
The answer is that originally a small knife was employed to shape a feather (Latin name PENNA) into a quill, cutting a nib for writing. The name stuck and the small knives became a household item, especially in the Scout Movement.
It pays to be inquisitive!
