We shall be heading north this year to the Peak District for a fun filled week of familiar (and not so familiar) activities, both above and below ground. Initial details can be found on the Summer Camp 2018 pages, including an outline of the camp, key dates and the payment schedule. More information on kit and the activities will appear in the coming weeks. We are at the point of booking the activities and need to have firm numbers by the end of January, so please can you bring the return slips and deposits along over the coming weeks.

3 Towers Hike 2018

Saturday 7th April - The Three Towers Hike is a team-based series of competition hikes through the Berkshire Countryside. There are four distances in the series but for our current Scouts we are offering the "Scout" event.

The Scout section event is one of the major parts of the weekend and introduces hundreds of young people to competition hiking. It covers a distance of about 16½ miles or 26½km.

The Scout Event starts kicks off around breakfast time and hikers have to walk a route covering the first one-third of the Classic event route [a 70km route aimed at adults]. The event is exclusively for Scout section members who are actively Scouting in Berkshire     (Text from

The event takes place on Saturday 7th April in teams of 3 or 4. We'll also run a couple of preparation hikes on the weekends in March.

If you're interested in taking part you can read more about the event at the official website ( or chat to a leader at a troop night. Feel free to organise a team with your friends or just tell us that you want to take part and we can arrange the teams closer to the time, the most important thing is that we get the right number of teams entered before the event is full, therefore we must know if you wish to enter, no later than Sunday February 25th - so be sure to let us know you want to take part soon. To enter we must receive an email from you confirming your interest. Scouts entering the event and failing to turn up on the day, will be liable for the full entry fee of £12 per scout. purp ( )

Interested in Our Previous Camps and Activities?

If you're missing the old "previous" sections that used to be on the link list to the right then don't worry, you can still get your blast from the past.

We're so active as a troop that the link list was getting long and messy so it's been reorganised into a new archive section. This will be where pages from past events will go, as well as the news posts which are the same as they always were.

If you've got any comments or suggestions we'd love to know, just drop Andy an email.
