Welcome Back!

Here ye, here ye! Scouting is starting back so you’d better make sure your name is in and registered! We will be in touch with you over the coming weeks about what’s on for the year. Beavers and Cubs are back next week on Monday and Tuesday respectively. All you scouts and Ventures will have to wait a few more weeks to meet up and chat about “all d gos” from camp and the summer! See ye all soon!!

Duckie on Tour with the Ventures!


Heidelberg will never be the same after the Maynooth Three Musketeers hit it! They hiked along the River Neckar running into many “This’ll be Great!” adventures! Duckie guided them along the way and kept the spirits high. Thanks Duckie! You’re the Best!
