We have two thriving Scout Troops at 62nd. Each Scout Troop consists of small units of six to eight Scouts called a Patrol, led by a Patrol Leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently, with the highlight being various camps throughout the year.
Rock climbing, caving, gliding, photography and international experiences are just some of the things we get up to.
Our summer Netherlands adventure
Thank you to all the Scouts and leaders who helped in making
this trip a great success. We’ve fallen in love with the Dutch
attitude to cycling. You never know – one of our Scouts may
come a great ambassador for UK cycling when they become
Prime Minister. Great photos and write ups appearing on our
Suggestions for the next Big Adventure please! We have
a couple of very cool ideas already…
SPL, PLs & APLs
In other words: Patrol Leaders, their assistants and the highly
regarded Senior Patrol Leader (the one who stands out the
front and gets everything organised!) These will be re-
organised early next term, we look out for various qualities, people who:
• attend regularly
• get stuck in no matter what
• set a good example and are great fun
• get on well with the oldest Scout Leader and
• looks super (ok, vaguely) smart each week
We decide all positions on everything we see from the
moment they join Scouts.
Congratulations to Ian Taplin for succeeding Ben Pritchard as
Senior Patrol Leader. He was presented in the Netherlands,
well done Ian
Goodbye: Which brings us on to say…
…thank you and farewell to all those Scouts who have
departed our doors over the Summer. Words are not enough!
You have continued the trend of being excellent leaders for
the other Scouts – joining in, providing banter, winding up the
leaders and generally being altogether brilliant. We really will
miss you! Enjoy Explorers: and if you ever want to be a Young
Leader – just shout out – we can find you somewhere.
Subs will now be £35 a term. Apologies for the increase, but still great value!
