One of Cheshire Scouting's premier activities returned revamped, revitalised and really quite good fun. The Cheshire Hike took place last weekend (2/3 April) with nearly 600 Scouts from across the county walking between 30km and 60km over the two days.
1st Tarvin Scouts had a team of four participating in the youngest section, Pathfinders (all under 12.5 years). They had been part of our training programme which takes Scouts from guided walks up to the level where they can confidently navigate between checkpoints, pitch camp and cook for themselves. Have a look at the official video on the Cheshire Hike website and see if you can spot our team. Watch Cheshire Hike 2022 on Vimeo 34 miles, also achieving Gold standard as well as an excellent placing in the overall rankings. They've been Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and now volunteer helping run meetings as part of the their Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
It wasn't all go all weekend. There was some downtime for all the young people on the Saturday evening with an outdoor cinema and silent disco as well as other games and activities -- and free chips. And I spent two pleasant days on check points drinking tea and chatting with some of the 250+ adults from across Cheshire who helped make the event happen.
The next years' hike is on 1 and 2 April 2023.
