First Scout Camp Renville Oranmore Saturday 19th Oct – Sunday 20th Oct

Congratulations to the Scouts who attend their first over night camp. The camp was held in Renville, Oranmore from Saturday 19th October to Sunday 20th October. The scouts assembled in car park beside the GAA ground at 10:45 on Saturday 20th and cycled to Oranmore.

Enroute they stopped in Lidl to purchase their food supplies based on the camp menu they had previously selected.

Once on site the first order of business was putting up the Tents (before lunch) due to the dry weather.

After lunch it was time to learn some basic pioneering, build a cooking area for each patrol and collect and chop firewood.

Once everything was ready it was time to prepare and cook the dinner with Tiger Patrol having chicken wraps and Meerkat Patrol having Chicken Curry.

After dinner it was time for a little night hike and a campfire. Bed time was 23:00.

Cub Hiking in County Clare

Well done to all the cubs who managed the hike to the top of the Mountain in Co Clare on Sunday 12th October. The day started out cold and wet but gradually the mist lifted and the day ended as a glorious sunny afternoon.
