Dangerous Activities for Boys (and Girls)

An exciting day's climbing at Brimham Rocks last weekend set the tone for the re-launched 1st Easingwold Scout Group - which is going back to basics with new leaders and a focus on fun outdoor activities and useful skills.Based at the new Easingwold Outdoor Centre at Dawney Bridge, the troop has plans to bring back sheath knives, hand axes and target shooting - all under the expert tuition of qualified trainers. The troop wants to re-capture the essence of Scouting, which Baden Powell described as the skills of explorers, backwoodsmen and frontiersmen. Last weekend's climbing expedition saw the Scouts scale rock faces under the watchful eye of the North Yorkshire scouts Activities Team. The youngsters improved in leaps and bounds (sometimes literally) and several are planning to improve their skills to try to gain climbing badges.There is no waiting list in the troop at present, with places available for boys and girls aged from 10 to 14. Search online for 1st Easingwold for more details.The 1st Easingwold Scout Council will be meeting next month (details in this paper soon) when parents and prospective parents can hear about the Scout Group's plans and help shape what will be an exciting future.
