District Water Weekend (Scouts)

Between: 10th June 2022 - 12th June 2022 Location: Thames Young Mariners in Ham

Once more we have the opportunity for Scouts to take part in the District Water Weekend.  This is a great event that provides lots of time on and in the water, learning lots of new skills and having a lot of fun. A fantastic selection of activities is included, such as Kayaking, Paddle-boarding, Sailing, Dragon Boating, Pulling (Rowing) and Raft Building. Scouts will camp onsite for 2 nights with all meals and a campfire included.

The event will be held at Thames Young Mariners in Ham, from Fri 10th June at 18:00hrs to Sun 12th June at 16:00hrs sharp.  The camp is limited to 200 Scouts across the district, which means that we have 10 places available for 2nd Mortlake. We have initially offered this to all Scouts who placed a deposit for the postponed 2020 event and will invite new Scouts later once we have those places confirmed.

Note that all Scouts participating must be able to swim 25 metres unaided (1 length of a standard uk swimming pool), equivalent to the Scout Swimmer Stage 1 badge (https://www.scouts.org.uk/staged-badges/swimmer/).
