Athletics at the Emirates

Having had some intense training over the past month, this week twenty-four of Balfron's scouts headed over to the Emirates Arena in Glasgow to take part in their very own Scout Olympics!

From a gruelling 800m race, a 4x200m relay and 100m sprints to long jump, shot put and high jump, the Scouts all put in a fantastic effort and have all completed the activity section of their Athletics Activity Badge.

Results of the competition to be released at the AGM next week! Well done!

Scouts Expedition Camp

Last weekend six of Balfron's oldest scouts braved the weather to undertake their expedition for their Chief Scout's Gold Award! Hiking along Loch Lomond and camping right beside the loch gave the opportunity for some (very cold) swimming with a lovely fire to warm up by the camp.

Congratulations to all six on completing their expedition and they will be looking forward to receiving their Chief Scout's Gold Awards in a few weeks time.

Balfron Cubs and Scouts at Meggernie

This weekend saw a combined Cub and Scout camp at Meggernie.

On Saturday we had an afternoon walk in the woods above the campsite -it was warm and sunny, we took plenty of breaks/rests stops on the way to the top of the hill.

The tent groups.....

And a few more .....
