#CabotExplorers

1 year 2 months and 20 days since we last had Explorers out on camp, they’re finally back! . Spitfire ESU were out last weekend hiking from Bristol to Tintern, with a night at Botany Bay - and there are another six Unit camps coming up over the next few weeks 🏕 . Fingers crossed for the first District camp that’s down in the calendar - @themeparkcamp in September! 🎢 . #CabotExplorers #SpitfireESU #Camping #BotanyBay #ThemeParkCamp

Young Leaders? Completed it mate 🎉 . The Young Leader Belt is awarded to Explorers who complete all 11 modules and all 4 missions in the Young Leaders’ Scheme. We’ve only had five Explorers in the District achieve this - three of them in the last few months! . Congratulations to Flinn (Concorde, 91st Beavers), Lauren (Pirates, 169th Cubs) and James (previously Concorde, 62nd Scouts) for this brilliant achievement, and well done for all the time they’ve put into the scheme and volunteering with their sections! . #CabotExplorers #SkillsForLife #YoungLeaders #YoungLeaderBelt

While Explorers have been able to work on some of their Top Awards over the last year, not being able to get out and about made it difficult for anybody to finish 😫 . After over a year of waiting, these six from Spitfire have finally been able to finish their Platinum awards, and join the Hall of Fame! 🌟 👑 . #SpitfireESU #CabotExplorers #SkillsForLife

While you’re tucked up in bed tonight spare a thought for some of our Explorers who are sleeping out in homemade shelters of all shapes and sizes, to raise awareness (and some money) for Sleep Pod, a charity which produces emergency shelters for rough sleepers - they’ve already raised nearly £900 between them! More info about the sleep out and the fundraiser is up on our website, link in bio 🏕 #CabotExplorers

Spitfire have their Silver and Gold DofE teams out this week, finally getting their practice expeditions in! Unfortunately no camping allowed currently, so they’re having to head home each day, but it’s good to see them out ⛰ #SpitfireESU #CabotExplorers

Day by day we get closer to being back to normal! Last week Steama made their return, with an Easter bank holiday walk near Bristol ☀️ #SteamaESU #CabotExplorers

As the end of term draws nearer it’s been great to have some of our Units back meeting in person, with a night hike, socially distanced investitures, and several Christmas BBQs planned! 🎄 #CabotExplorers

On the eve of lockdown, and with another break to face-to-face Scouting coming, #PiratesESU spent the evening painting kindness-spreading rocks, to be left out and hopefully put a smile on somebody’s face #CabotExplorers
