Highlights from our Spring residential camp at Glenbrook Outdoor Activity Centre in the Peak District, 7-9th March.
This year Hillsborough Explorer Unit joined 1,500 other Scouts from all over Europe to take part in Walesby World Experience 2013. This fantastic international camp combined traditional Scouting activities such as Zorbing, climbing, air rifle shooting and laser quest with live music performances and days out to Lightwater Valley Theme Park and Lincoln to create a truly memorable experience for all involved. Take a look at our video for some of our highlights from camp.
On the final day of our Scotland Summer Camp we went for a unforgettable ice climbing experience at the world’s largest indoor ice climbing wall in Kinlochleven. Check out some of the pictures from this fantastic activity.
The first Hillsborough Explorer Unit Summer Camp since 2004 took place this summer. Between 25th August & 1st September we took ten explorer scouts up to Scotland to complete their Chief Scout Platinum Award expeditions. From our base camp at Spean Bridge, near Fort William, the two expedition groups walked a 3-day section of the the West Highland Way, wild camping along the route. Plans are already in place for next year’s summer camp which will be at Walesby Forest in Nottinghamshire.
