Greetings, fellow adventurers! Recently, our SW Notts District Squirrel Scouts embarked on an unforgettable journey into the heart of nature, where excitement and discovery awaited at every turn. From mastering basic outdoor skills to indulging in classic campfire delights, our young scouts embraced the wonders of the wilderness with enthusiasm and joy.

Gathered at Hollygate Scout Campsite in Cotgrave, our Squirrel Scouts gathered for a day dedicated to exploring the great outdoors. Guided by our dedicated team of leaders and volunteers, our little adventurers eagerly delved into a world of discovery tailored just for them.

The day began with the thrill of learning essential knot tying techniques, as our Squirrel Scouts proudly demonstrated their newfound skills with smiles stretching from ear to ear. Amidst the rustling leaves and dappled sunlight, soft archery and foam axe throwing added an extra layer of excitement, sparking laughter and friendly competition amongst our budding marksmen and women.

As the sun climbed higher in the sky, our Squirrel Scouts gathered around crackling campfires to learn the art of fire lighting and fire safety—an important lesson in outdoor exploration. With careful guidance from our leaders, each scout took their turn at the helm, igniting flames of curiosity and confidence within themselves.

Of course, no outdoor adventure would be complete without a culinary journey to tantalize the taste buds! Armed with aprons and a sense of culinary curiosity, our Squirrel Scouts eagerly participated in cooking lunch over an open flame, delighting in the sizzle and aroma of their creations. Toasted marshmallows added a sweet finale to the meal, as giggles and smiles filled the air.

But beyond the practical skills learned, the day was a testament to the power of friendship and teamwork. Through collaborative activities in the woods and the shared joy of putting up tents, our Squirrel Scouts formed bonds that would last a lifetime, proving that even the smallest adventurers can achieve great things when they work together.

As the sun began its descent, our Squirrel Scouts returned home with hearts full of cherished memories and a newfound sense of confidence in the great outdoors. With each step, they carried the spirit of exploration and camaraderie that defines our SW Notts District Squirrel Scouts, eagerly awaiting their next adventure in the wild.
