Explorers Make a Splash!

Date: 6th Jun 2021 Author: News Editor

Explorer Scouts from Farnsfield gathered for a day of water activity on Sunday 6th June. Over 30 young people from both the Scout section and Explorers took on one of the first water events the young people have attended in recent times.

Held at Nottinghamshire Scouts Adventure Centre near Hoveringham, the day was adventure packed with loads of on and off water activities for the 14 to 18 year olds to do. Explorers had the chance to take part in exciting water-based activities, ranging from kayaking to sailing, to canoeing and even a chance to take a cool down swim in the lake!

Despite the weather forecasts threatening inclement weather, it stayed dry and the Explorers enjoyed a great taste of adventure on the water.

Farnsfield Explorers have an action-packed summer coming up with the Great Farnsfield Cook Off, survival skills night, a murder mystery evening and even a bit of fitness with “when’s a scone a scon?”.

Thank you to the adults that made the water activity day possible. We can’t do this without great volunteers. Farnsfield Explorer Scouts is open to young people aged 14 to 18.

Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.'
