We had a great day with Kingston Scouts Canoe Club today, taking Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers out on the water, followed by a BBQ run by some of our amazing parents.
Every now and then we have a child who can’t move from Beavers to Cubs or Cubs to Scouts, due to the nights of the week we have our meetings. The information of what groups meet when is all available on the web, but I thought I’d try and bring it together for reference.
The details below are all correct as of July 2014 and include any Groups in the Royal Kingston District that I could easily find details for on their websites.
* also meet on Saturday mornings
Please note that the above table does not represent all groups in the Royal Kingston District, only the sections I could easily find information for on their websites. For a full list of groups please visit the Royal Kingston District website.
We had a really great St George’s Day parade on the 27th April with a service run by an Explorer Unit and a parade along Ewell Road in Tolworth. We even managed to stay dry throughout. The best part of the event for Chessington however was in us winning the Bridger Family Trophy for the smartest Group on parade! Over 1200 children and adults took part from over 18 Groups in the District. All the Leaders are very proud of the excellent behaviour and smart appearance of all of our Cubs, Beavers and Scouts. Thank you!

So today we went out on the Thames with Kingston Scouts Canoe Club. This is something we’ve done for the last few years but usually on a weekday evening. This year we went for a Saturday morning and it was much more relaxing.
Twenty Cubs and Scouts (plus two leaders and a dad) went out on the water in kayaks and canoes and had a great time. Mentioning no names but there was at least one Cub who seemed to spend more time in the water than in the kayak! By the end if the session most people were soaked through. Luckily with the recent weather the water was pretty warm, even in the river.
