Galway County Scout Camp

Well done to all of the Athenry Patrols who participated in the Galway County Scout Camp held in Portlick Camp site over the May Bank holiday. There were 30 Patrols in attendance form County Galway representing nearly every Scout section in the County.

There were three Athenry Patrols in attendance, Koala Bears in the Plate Competition and for the first time ever Athenry entered the Shield Competition with Kangaroos and Penguin Patrols.

The Koala Bear Patrol returned with a Silver Standard from the Plate Patrol.

Both of the Shield Patrols returned with Gold standard with the Penguins coming fifth and the Kangaroos coming third overall. This result means that the Athenry Scouts have won a place at the National Phoenix Camping Competition to be held in late August.

This is a tremendous achievement and shows the dedication and hard work undertaken by the Scouts over the last few months during weekly meetings and practice Saturday.

All of the Athenry Scouters are very proud of the work undertaken by all of the Scouts involved.
