Night Hike

On Friday night two patrols from Stocksfield – the Tigers and the Nightmares – took part in the District Night Hike. They joined eleven other patrols who had to navigate around a fourteen point course in the countryside.

Not content with the challenge of keeping en route and answering the quiz questions at each stage, our Scouts added their own twist. One patrol created an impromptu self-rescue activity when one Scout got his boot stuck in the middle of a large patch of mud in the woods. Another managed to catch (and later release) a small shrew that was probably not expecting to see all these Scouts out after dark.
