12th Cambridge is an exceptionally active, friendly Group, based in the heart of the community in north Cambridge. Our programme is broad, exciting and youth-led – the range of activity ideas from our youngsters is extraordinary. We have around 100 young people in four sections: Beavers, Cubs and two Scout Troops.
Our recent adventures have included: gliding, various hikes (including some Scottish mountains), competing in the national archery competition, cardboard canoe-making, climbing, white-water canoeing, sailing (both offshore and Norfolk Broads), visits to Duxford, building bridges across rivers, karting, pizza-making, pioneering, fire-lighting, knife skills and, of course, camping in all weathers (even the Beavers get to sleep in tents!). Summer 2017 will see 15 of our intrepid scouts wild-camping on an expedition to Canada (complete with bears and a waterfall as a shower!).
The fun is not just for the youngsters – leaders get to join in too! To get more of a taste of 12th Cambridge scouting, check out our website gallery: 12thcambridge.org.uk/the-
