Campfire Eclairs!

Explorers spent an evening on Hessle Forshore cooking jam and cream eclairs on a stick. A new delicious challenge!

Explorers took part in an incident hike. During the night hike leaders added first aid scenarios to challenge the teams, this included casualty evaluation.

Night Hike, Bivvies and Backwoods Cooking

Explorers were sent on a night hike, with a sealed packing box, and when they arrived at the overnight camp, the tent was taken off them and everything they needed for the night was in the box. Tarps, rope, tinned hot dogs and bread, no tin opener or cooking pots…. they had to work it…

Water and Catapults!

Explorers completed a pioneering project, building a catapult to launch water bombs. The evening ended in a mass water fight which was very welcome on one of the hottest weeks of the year!

Well done to our two teams of Explorers that took part in the Wolds Challenge. This event is a test of navigation, route finding and team work, as well as a walking challenge with Explorers travelling 17 miles during the day. A particular congratulations to Team D who completed the route in 5 hours 17 minutes, finishing…

Ready for camping….

Explorers spent the evening pitching their new expedition tents and finished the night putting up the bell tent which they will use as a base camp and communal space on future camps.

Cooking Challenge

Explorers completed a cooking challenge. Working with a variety of stoves that they might encounter on hikes or camps, some were challenged to soft boil an egg and others to hard boil one!

Explorers Exploring

Explorers met up outdoors for the first time in over a year, for a socially distanced walk around Elloughton, followed by presentation of new name tapes for uniforms. Everyone enjoyed the fresh air and the chat.
