Lazer Tag

  |   By

Tonight Shackleton Explorers celebrated the end of term with a trip to Lazer World where they battled out 3 different games.

Red 10 was frequently the best scoring player so I expect there may have been some cheating going on!

Time for a relaxing Christmas break, we will see you all in the new year.

Phil’s Cooking Challenge

  |   By

This evening, the explorers took part in a cooking challenge to create the best tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwich. As easy it should have been, after multiple fire alarms, much burnt toast, each team presented their creation. The results were variable but at least it was all edible!

Winter Camp 2022

   |   By

From 2nd to 4th December, Shackleton Explorers enjoyed a winter camp at Bentley Copse Scout Campsite. Staying inside in Palmer House, the cold didn’t bother us! Activities including a night hike, zipline, crate stacking, climbing, abseiling, rifle shooting, karaoke and lots of food!

It was a nice relaxing camp to celebrate a successful year with successes at the Downsman, Rifle Shooting Competitions and D of E.

Thanks to the leaders for supporting the activities this year, here’s to a successful 2023!

Jamboree Led Evening

   |   By

Last Monday (28th), Joe, Tom and Leo who are off to Korea next year led the evening. They gave a short presentation about the jamboree, led a jamboree quiz, taught some basic phrases and led a couple of Korean themed games. All in all, a very educational evening!
