To kick off our new term we visited Underbank Activity Centre in Stocksbridge for an afternoon of raft building and other team building exercises, followed by a (somewhat successful) BBQ by the reservoir. The leader team won the rafting race with a simple yet effective design inspired by many a camp at Walesby Forest. Well done to everyone who took part and for some really impressive raft designs. Let’s make this year our best yet!
From September we will be meeting at the slightly later time of 7:30-9:30pm. This is to accommodate a new cub pack which will be meeting before us on Monday evenings.
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.

This week was our annual Curry Cook-Off competition. Four teams (including the leaders) battled it out to create the ultimate curry dish from scratch. Each dish was sampled by our guest judge before being ranked in order of tastiness. The results were as follows:
Winners – The Leader Team
2nd Place – Ben, Kieron, Chris, Molly and Charlotte
3rd Place – David, Joe and Nat
4th Place – Stephen
Well done to everyone who took part.
