This weekend saw the Scouts set off for an expedition. They took the bus from Bromley North to the village of Downe in Kent. They then hiked to Down House the former home of Charles Darwin. At Down House they were joined by the Cubs for a tour of the house and gardens by our Group President (who also happens to be a Professor of Biology). The house is well worth a visit and the staff were incredibly helpful.
After the visit the Scouts had their packed lunch before used their map reading skills to find their way across fields to the District campsite, Wilberforce. There they spent the rest of the day playing team games, exploring the woods before cooking a lovely dinner.
After dinner we built up a campfire and the Scouts entertained us with skits around the campfire. There was one last team game by torchlight before hitting our sleeping bags for a well-deserved night’s sleep!
In the morning the Scouts cooked breakfast, packed up and we headed back to Bromley on the bus.
