A few pictures from our 2021 Scout Summer Camp at Pinsent Campsite, Winchester
We asked all our campers to take part in an Earth Hour activity between 8:30 and 9:30. Many marshmallows were toasted along with some other ideas they came up with.
110g Cream Cheese
12 Oreo Biscuits
- Pull the biscuits in half
- Scrape off the filling and keep it in a bowl.
- Put the biscuits into the plastic bag, wrap the bag in a tea towel and whack it with a rolling pin until you have crumbs
- Mix the crumbs with the cream cheese and biscuit filling in the bowl
- Shape the goo into 2cm rough balls and put in the fridge while you have tea
- Roll the cooled balls into smooth balls
- Melt the chocolate in a mug in the microwave or place the mug in a pan partially filled with water
- Dip each ball into the chocolate (I found using 2 teaspoons helpful) and put it on to greaseproof paper
- Make a small hole in each bomb and poke in about 2cm of a strawberry shoelace.
- Return to the fridge for about 15 minutes
- Do the washing up
We challenged out Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to disguise themselves as a spy so that no-one would recognise them
The Beavers, Cubs and Scouts are all taking part in Spy Camp at Home.
Traditionally we go away for a Family Camp after Easter with youth members and parents taking part in activities. For the last 12 months, things have been a little different and we have been scouting from home with meetings held online.
With the prospect of no camping for a while, we held a Spy Camp at home with our young people and their families challenged to a series of missions that count towards badges. Here are some of the pictures that they sent in.

WSJ2019: Tegan has set up a Facebook page to track her 24th World Scout Jamboree journey. You can follow her fundraising and preparation over the next 2 years.
Her speedy start has already gained her the Scout Fundraising Activity Badge – well done Tegan!
The selection process for the 24th World Scout Jamboree in North America in 2019 has been taking place in Hampshire over the last few months.
This process concluded with the selection weekend 2 weeks ago where over 300 Scouts and Explorers were tasked with undertaking a number of challenges and activities designed to determine their suitability to attend this huge event which only takes place every four years. The prospective participants found out only yesterday whether their applications were successful.
It is with great pleasure that I can tell you that Tegan Lewis has been selected as one of the 96 Scouts and Explorers from across Hampshire who will be attending this event. Tegan has held a long standing ambition to attend a World Jamboree and her selection is a massive personal achievement and a credit to her and to 1st Liss Scout Group.
She now has the hard task of raising funds for her trip and as her Scout Troop, we will be supporting her as much as possible.
For those under the age of eligibility for attendance in 2019 (most of the troop), there will be an opportunity to follow Tegan through this process and for you to apply in four years time for the 25th WSJ in 2023. As one of the pinnacle events in World Scouting the WSJ is the opportunity of a lifetime to experience new challenges, meet new people and to visit a new country.
Congratulations Tegan and best of luck for the next two years leading up to and embarking on this amazing experience.
Scouts and Leaders safely arrived around 1 O’clock. Tents all up before the rain kicked in. All getting nice and soggy in the summer weather!
