A group of 8 Sandbach Scouts and 2 leaders recently spent an enjoyable day of team building at Petty Pool Outdoor Education Centre at Sandiway, Northwich, thanks to the Rotary Club of Sandbach. The Rotary club had donated funds for the project which had been matched by a grant from Rotary District funds.

The day began on the climbing wall. Many Scouts managed to reach the top and all members of the group pushed themselves to achieve more than they thought they could.

Split into two teams, the Scouts next had to compete against each other to see who could build the highest tower using plastic crates. This was a really good exercise in teamwork, something which is at the basis of Scouting, said their leader.

The Gladiator Challenge, negotiating obstacles to the top of a climbing tower, proved to be more difficult but again it showed that working together can achieve a better result than working alone. Everyone pushed themselves to the limit, achieved really good results and said they felt proud of their achievements.

The final activity of the day was Den Building with the Scouts divided into three groups. The waterproof test consisted of throwing a bucket of water over each of the completed dens. The Scout leader commented that she wouldn’t want to sleep in any of them after watching the Scouts from all three coming out wet through.

Lise Grasmeder, Assistant Scout Leader for the 39th SWC Scouts, thanked the Rotary Club and said that the Scouts – and the leaders – had had an amazing day and everyone had left with a smile on their face.
