2019 August Bulletin

Date: 20th Aug 2019 Author: Chris Pinnell


May to July was a busy time for Westhill Scouts with two major camps. Highland Adventure Camp was held at the start of May and whilst it was hailstones and freezing temperatures in Westhill the youngsters who camped at Brechin enjoyed sunshine, lots of amazing activities including a water assault course on the Tay in Dundee, campfires and. Those who went had a thoroughly great time and are hoping to go to ‘Island Adventure camp’ next year.

Later in May a great number of our young people enjoyed the Gordon Gathering which was held at BA Stores and saw around 750 people take part. The biennial camp is organised by The Gordon District Scouts for all groups in the local area. Our Beaver colonies enjoyed attending for the day on the Saturday and had great fun trying out a variety of activities. Cubs, Scouts and Explorers camped from the Friday until the Sunday and certainly enjoyed the activities, campfire and disco on offer.

Also, thanks to everyone who braved the weather and bought popcorn from our stall at the Westhill Gala. The money raised will help with group activities throughout the year.

The group is looking to hold a group camp at Lochter Activity Centre by Oldmeldrum in September. Those who come will get to have a go of all of the fun activities that the centre has to offer such as archery, fishing, canoeing, climbing and ziplining.

We are always on the lookout for new adults to help with the group be it on the committee or directly helping with the sections. If you are interested in becoming involved in Westhill Scout Group, please do get in touch.

Similarly, if you know of a young person who would like to join one of our sections then please email to have their details added to the waiting list. We have separate waiting lists for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
