Scouts from across West Lancashire spent the day at the indoor climbing wall in Ormskirk earlier this month.
The day started with a treasure hunt but quickly moved onto more challenging activities on the climbing wall. The Scouts took part in teamwork, having to work together with one Scout blindfolded.Jim Aldridge, an Adult Volunteer from West Lancashire said ‘ This is the second year we have ran this event, which is part of the development of this section – to provide a wide range of new fun and challenging experiences for the 6-8 year old Scouts.’ He added ‘Scouting provides opportunities for young people to try new activities that they may not have the opportunity to try elsewhere’.
Vicky, Adult Volunteer from Skelmersdale said ‘ It was a gripping experience. The Scouts had a brilliant day! Scouting in West Lancashire is always looking to offer these opportunities to more young people to do this we need more adult volunteers. If you have skills we could use then come and help!’
