Scouts enjoy PGL adventure!

Apparently PGL does not stand for ‘Parents Get Lost’ but are instead the initials of the founder, Peter Gordon Lawrence, who started the centres in the 1950s! Still going strong PGL hosted the 28th Bathampton Scouts for a weekend of fun and adventure at the end of February.

Over the weekend Scouts, aged 10-14, from Bathampton headed to Osmington Bay, near Weymouth, for two days of adventurous activities and team building. The Scouts were working towards their Adventure Challenge award which involved taking part in exciting activities such as high-ropes, archery, shooting and fencing.

The Scouts even took part in PGL’s very own ‘survivor challenge’, where theyhad to work out what to do a in a shipwreck scenario and build a shelter and light a fire to be rescued. The Scouts impressed the instructors with their knowledge of bushcraft and survival skills that they’ve learnt at Troop nights.

Weekends like this are just many of the Scout camps and activities that take place for young people aged 6-25 years old. For more information on joining, get in touch!
