That’s Aiden and Caitlin all set for the adventure of a lifetime. The unit are hopefully getting some sleep tonight in Paisley before their flight to Heathrow tomorrow and then on to Seoul. 5 days exploring the capital of South Korea including a trip to the Demilitarised Zone before they join the Jamboree proper with 50,000 other Scouts from all over the world!


We will keep you posted over the next 3 weeks with their story! We wish both of them an absolutely amazing adventure. Make great memories!

On Saturday 34 Squirrels and Beavers from 1st Rhu took part in an Adventure Day at Arden campsite on the banks of Loch Lomond.

We learned how to put our tents up, tie knots, start a fire with a flint and steel and we also spent time creating with clay and things from nature. We played wide games, had an amazing campfire and then the Beavers stayed overnight in tents!

A huge thank you to all the leaders and young leaders that volunteered to help create a fantastic day and to the parents who gave up their Saturday to share their skills with our young people.

So that’s a wrap from a brilliant scouting weekend. It was fantastic to see 47 members of 1st Rhu having an amazing time. The greatest pleasure we have as leaders is seeing young people stretch outside their comfort zone and try a new challenge! 


Thank you to the team at Scout Adventures Lochgoilhead for putting on another great adventure, filled with lots of new skills and activities to try, you never cease to amaze us. Also to the chefs who kept everyone superbly well fed during the weekend. 


A big thank you to the team of Rhu leaders! We had great fun spending time with everyone, having a laugh and working hard. Without the efforts of these leaders we wouldn’t be able to pull off such amazing camps! Please remember the leaders have as much fun as the Young People and took part in all the activities. If you want to join us we have many roles and can find one to suit you. 


Here’s looking forward to the future and lots more Scouting Adventures.
