Larch Hill – 12th – 14th May Photos

🌲🔥 What an incredible weekend at Larch Hill! Our Scouts had on an unforgettable camping adventure filled with laughter, song, and captivating stories by the campfire. 🏕️
On Saturday we hiked in the Dublin Mountains up to the top of Fairy Castle and we took in some breathtaking views along the way. Let the memories made around the campfire and in the mountains serve as a testament to the incredible spirit of our Scouts. 📸🔥🌈

Larch Hill Camping Weekend – Friday 12th – Sunday 14th May

Larch Hill Camping Weekend

Hi all,

We will be going on a camping trip at Larch Hill this weekend. We are hoping as many Scouts as possible can go! The cost of the weekend is €30, which covers camping fees, food and van rental (for transporting equipment).

We no longer have use of our mini buses so are relying on parents to transport Scouts to Larch Hill. We will be meeting at the Den at 6:30pm on Friday. Scouts should have had their dinner on Friday afternoon as we will only be having a light snack on Friday evening.

Scouts will be ready to be picked up from Larch Hill at 12 noon. (We will keep you updated on the WhatsApp Group)

A lot of excitement on Thursday as we invested a whopping 17 new Scouts and 3 leaders into the Raven Troop. Each and every Scout did really well and has already made a very positive impact on our Troop in the few months since they have joined… have our newer leaders!!! (all past members of the Raven Troop). 4 of our Scouts also received their Cub Chief Scout Award and 2 Scouts received their Special Interest Awards. Well done all! The future is looking bright!!!
