Here at 1st Winnersh Scout Group we believe in fun, adventure and life skills. We work hard and play harder, we have active sections that work at getting their Chief Scouts award for the section. Whilst doing this we try to give young people the opportunity to develop, to follow their individual passions and to learn new things.
On the activity front we are lucky enough to have our own climbing instructors so there is plenty of opportunity for rope based activities. We regularly go away with opportunities for nights away across all age ranges. These opportunities present them selves within both buildings, campsites and green field camping where we have to provide all our own facilities. Some of our cams are to national centers where we give the young people opportunities to take on new adventurous activities.
Other activities we undertake include making use of the water (we are lucky to be based next to a lake with sailing and kayaking available). We also hike, take part in orienteering, go cycling, create interesting pioneering projects (bridges and soak the leader for example). These are just some of our activities.
We also go each year to the Panto on Ice, the cubs do the panto at the Hexagon. We attend the South East Berks gang show each year and have been lucky enough to see one of our own scouts int he show (He is still in it each year albeit as an explorer scout now).
