Welcome to Arapaho

Raywell Fun Day

Beavers had a great time completing activities towards their Camp Craft Activity badge, alongside some adventurous activities. We put up a tent, made pot bags, had fun in the cavebus, on pedal karts, and orienteering around Raywell Park. We then collected wood, to build and light a fire to cook our tea on. An excellent…

Chief Scout Silver Award

Congratulations to Cherokee Cubs Ava and Alexander on achieving their Chief Scout Silver Award. Charlotte, our GSL, presented them before Cubs went off for a hike around Nut Wood, where they found some dens to shelter from the rain.

Cooking in Oranges

Explorers have continued their cooking theme this term, with another visit to Raywell Park. This time they experimented with cooking in oranges in the embers of the fire.

Chief Scout Silver Award

Congratulations to Cherokee Cubs Fraser, Harrison and Owen who have all achieved their Chief Scout Silver Awards.

Challenges

During lockdowns there were just some things that were hard to do at home and on Zoom, so Cherokee Cubs have had a couple of weeks of completing missing bits of badges. We’ve sawn wood, made rope, identified garden tools, walked around the local area and drawn our own map, completed problem solving activities, compass…

Fires!

As part of their Adventure Challenge Beavers have enjoyed collecting wood to build a small fire, which they then lit safely using matches, and toasted marshmallows to make smores. Thank you to everyone that saved their biscuit tins for us.

Fires, Gadgets and Bugs

Cherokee Cubs have spent their first few weeks back face to face meeting in smaller groups. They have each learnt how to light and extinguish a fire at Raywell for their Backwoods Cooking badge, build a camp gadget using the knots we learnt on zoom at the Scout Den for their Pioneer badge, and identify…

Gruffalo Adventure

2019 is the Gruffalo’s 20th birthday, and to celebrate Beavers have taken part in a Gruffalo Adventure. Outdoors we enjoyed the climbing wall and go karts, as well as making pictures of Gruffalo characters from natural items, and hunting for bugs. We made our own pizza and Gruffalo feet for lunch, Gruffalo crumble for tea,…

Group Camp 2019

Once a year we like to take all sections of Hessle Scout Group to camp, and as usual we’ve had a scorching hot, fantastic time. We had a circus theme for the weekend and learnt circus skills, made a circus ring, decorated t-shirts to wear whilst performing and had fun on an inflatable assault course…

County Beaver Fun Day

Beavers had an action packed day completing their Air Activities Badge at Raywell Park. We made kites, boomerangs and helicopters, launched rockets, bounced on castles and watched an excellent show by the Earth Bound Misfits.

Welcome to Cherokee

Cherokee have welcomed and invested lots of new Cubs this term, some who have just swam up the river from Beavers and others new to scouting. They were invested in the sunshine in some of our favourite places, Hessle Foreshore and Raywell Park.

THE ELF CHALLENGE

What a weekend!  Hessle Beavers completed the Elf Challenge, doing all things Christmas.  We made Christmas stockings, tree decorations, gingerbread houses –  both large and small, we cooked Christmas dinner, decorated plates to leave goodies out for Santa, went sledging, made and iced Christmas cakes, watched the movie ‘Elf’ and then made sleighs from lego. …

A Night at Raywell

This week we were up at Raywell Park for some outdoor activities. We took part in a scavenger hunt around the site looking for things such as something straight, something that feels rough and an interesting rock! We also had a go at a sisal trail. In pairs, one Beaver was blindfolded and the other…
