Jamboree on the Trail 2023

Well done to everyone that took part in our annual Jamboree on the Trail sponsored walk. What an achievement for our young people with Explorers and Scouts walking 15 miles, Cubs 7 miles and Beavers 5 miles on a scorching hot day. So far we have raised just over £400. Thank you also to our…

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.


Cherokee Cubs have been working towards their cyclist activity badge, completing a bike ride across the Humber Bridge one week, and learning about bicycle maintenance, mending punctures and safety at the den the other week. They also took part in a slow bike race, showing their skill and control whilst riding and produced a display…

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.

Speedy Cyclists

As part of our cyclist badge, Rusty demonstrated how to pump our bicycle tyres, Keeo and Malak checked everyone was wearing their helmet correctly and a hi-viz jacket, and then we managed to cycle and scooter across the Humber Bridge and back in record time. We had some fantastic sunset views on the way back….

Cherokee on the move!

Cherokee Cubs have just completed a three week rotation of activities – a hike around the Humber Bridge Country Park, a cycle ride across the Humber Bridge and activities on zoom towards their book reader badge. It’s great to be back outside completing challenges together, even if we are in smaller groups.

Humber Rescue

Following our cycle challenge in the summer, Cherokee Cubs have been down to Humber Rescue to hand over the money we raised. They were also lucky enough to get on the boat for a look around.

JOTT 2019

Well done to everyone that took part in our Jamboree on the Trail 2019 hike. Whether you walked the full 15 miles, the middle 8 miles or the shorter 4 miles, we completed it in a very good time, and had some delicious cakes along the way. We’ll let you know how much we raised…

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.


Beavers completed their cyclist badge in perfect weather.  We cycled from the Humber Bridge Car Park over to the bridge tower on the south bank of the Humber and back.  Thanks to all the parents that joined us to make the trip possible.

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.

2016 Jamboree on the Trail

Hessle Beavers took part in the 2016 Jamboree on the Trail today, along with all the other sections in Hessle Scout Group.  The Explorers, Apache and Navajo Scouts set off early this morning from the Humber Bridge, going southbound across the bridge and headed to South Ferriby.  There they met up with Arapaho and Cherokee…

Beavers Hike along the Humber

Hessle Beavers undertook a practice hike this week, in preparation for the Hessle Scout Group sponsored walk on 9 May.  It was a lovely evening to be down by the river, and the Beavers walked at a fantastic pace whilst throwing lots of stones into the water.

Humber Bridge Foreshore

The Cubs were taught fire lighting skills on the Foreshore. All under strict supervision of course

Humber Bridge Sponsored Walk

On 22nd April, 5 of the cubs took part in a sponsored walk across the bridge. Half of the money raised went Cruse Bereavement Care charity and the other half to our Centenary Fund. They did very well to complete it as the weather was against them!
