After many months of planning and preparations, we are now just one week away from Keswick Adventure which will see a group of 32 scouts, ventures and leaders spending 10 days in the Lake District and Manchester.  

The highlight of this trip will be an activity-packed, 4 day joint camp whose planning and running is being headed by with the 1st Keswick Scout Group.  Kayaking, canoeing, shooting, pioneering, water tunnels, climbing wall, archery, campfires, hikes, swimming, a hog roast dinner, backwoods cooking, crafts, raft building, football and a Maltese night are all set to feature in this memorable camp.  Scouts from the Shap and 2nd Penrith Scout Group will also be attending.  

Following the camp, the Group will then be spending a few days at the Keswick Scout Group's headquarters, from where the scouts will be going caving, ghyll scrambling, visiting various museums, hiking, geocaching and ferry hopping.  The ventures, on the other hand, will be doing their qualifying President's Award expedition.

The contingent will then move to Manchester, where it will be accommodated in a scout centre. The group will be going to Alton Towers, visiting Chester Zoo, Old Trafford and various museums.

Despite the unimaginable amount of planning that such a trip involves, these preparations are in their final stages and according to schedule, and we are confident that this activity will be one which will be remembered for years to come!
