Treasure Chest donation to 43rd Ayrshire Scout Group, Kincaidston
At a recent meeting of the 43rd Ayrshire Scouts, Kincaidston, President of Ayr Rotary, Douglas Haddow, presented a cheque for £200 from their Treasure Chest fund. The money will be used to buy archery equipment for the Club and the Scouts have agreed to visit Ayr Rotary to give a demonstration in the near future. The 43rd which meets in Kincaidston Pavilion, caters for boys and girls in Beavers & Cubs (6-10 yr olds): 1800 – 1915 and Scouts & Explorers (10-18 yr olds): 1915 – 2030 on Thursday evenings. Their activities include camping, hill walking and archery. Other activities include gorge walking, climbing, bouldering, kayaking and good old fashioned tree climbing.
The Club’s focus is on the outdoor skills and bushcraft aspect, with the youngsters learning firelighting, axe and saw work, wood preparation, pioneering (building secure structures with timber and rope), cooking on alter fires. Stoves are rarely used when camping. Storm the castle is a particularly popular activity during warmer weather camps.
There are no waiting lists so anyone who is interested in joining the 43rd Ayrshire Scout Group, Kincaidston, please contact Moira (01292 561 105) This applies to both boys and girls for all sections
