Its now been two months since our scouts visited Kandersteg International Scout Site in Switzerland. In July, 24 scouts and 6 adults flew almost 700 miles and travelled over 3 hours on the train to get to our destination. While we were away our media guru was filming from meeting at Newcastle Airport to returning. Below you can see the video of our trip. D'Arcy our media guru and one of our newest leaders has spent her time since Kandersteg preparing and moving to university and has still put together this amazing video.
Get ready for a spooky weekend of adventure at Moor House!
Can you stomach the spinning bikes, conquer the travellator or avoid the sweeper?
Confido is a huge weekend of activities with a great atmosphere! 1200 Scouts, Explorers and Guides will camp together for two nights, eat in our centrally catered marquee and enjoy two evenings of entertainment including bands, a disco, campfires and our own cinema. We've got our own radio station, mobile phone apps and cafe - there really is something for everyone at Confido!
Please see the attachments below for Confido 2017, where you can find the joining instructions, kit list, pick-up and drop-off instructions along with a copy of the parents information PowerPoint.
This weekend scouts took part in a District Climbing, Shooting and Archery competition at Moor House Adventure Centre. Well done to all those involved. When the results were released initially we thought we came 2nd and 3rd however once the numbers were rechecked we came 2nd and joint 6th. This is still fantastic. Well done to the 8 scouts that took part and thanks for coming along to the event on your weekend.
