Campfire Eclairs!

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

Welcome to Cherokee

Cherokee Cubs invested six new Cubs this term, welcome to Zachary, Joshua, Louise, Harrison, Sophie and Christopher. We also completed our Athletics badge down near Hessle Foreshore. Lots of running, jumping, throwing and a sports day to conclude, with the yellow six winning the event. Alfie was also presented with his Cub of the Camp…

Backwoods Cooking

Cherokee Cubs put their cooking skills to the test on Hessle Foreshore. The older group made a frittata and sausages, the middle group pitta bread pizza, and along with the younger group toasted marshmallows to make smores. All lit and extinguised their own fires. A delightful time in the evening sunshine.

Welcome to Navajo

Navajo Scouts invested four new members into the Troop, before building fires and cooking sausages for hot dogs on the Foreshore.

Foreshore Fires

Arapaho Cubs spent the evening on Hessle Foreshore, to cook soup and dampers over fires they’d lit themselves. They also got to meet some of the Scout Leaders from Navajo and Apache Scout Troops

Backwoods Cooking

Hessle Navajo Scouts enjoyed some backwoods cooking on the banks of the River Humber last night. After the Scouts had found enough wood and built their fire, they baked foil parcels of meat and veg in the embers. They also were successful in BBQ’ing burgers on cabbage leaves.

Spring Hike

Beavers enjoyed their first hike of the year, walking along the foreshore from Hessle to North Ferriby. We couldn’t have picked a nicer evening for the walk, although a little misty, the setting sun was a huge bright orange ball in the sky.

Hessle Foreshore

Cherokee Cubs had a great start to the term, working as a team in their sixes, they built and lit fires to toast marshmallows, and then safely extinguished them. As part of their Naturalist badge they also experimented with natural things to find which would dye a small square of fabric, and learnt some interesting…

Hessle Foreshore

Perfect weather for an evening on Hessle Foreshore. As part of our Outdoor Challenge badge we built a fire, toasted marshmallows to make smores, and built some fantastic sculptures out of stones. Thanks to all the parents that helped us.

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.

Outdoor Cooking

Beavers spent the evening cooking on the foreshore as part of the outdoor and adventure challenge badges.  For supper they made sausages and spaghetti followed by camp cones – some were a little bit toasty but still delicious.  In the lovely evening sunshine they also built sculptures using natural materials found along the foreshore.

Hessle Foreshore Beach Clean

In conjunction with the Marine Conservation Society and staff from The Deep, Beavers and parents took part in a beach clean on Hessle Foreshore.  Some of our best-loved marine wildlife is under threat from the waste and litter in our seas, with hundreds of species accidentally eating or becoming entangled in litter. It’s also dangerous…
