Last weekend, 9 Explorer Scouts from Caithness Explorer
Unit joined more than 500 others from all over Scotland for the official
launch of Explorer Scouting in Scotland. The 'In The Beginning' camp
was held at Scottish Scout Headquarters near Dunfermline. The
Explorer Scouts from Wick and Thurso spent Saturday morning and afternoon
and Sunday morning doing activities including mountain biking, kayaking,
caving and archery. On Saturday evening there was a meal followed by a
disco then a camp fire until it was almost time for breakfast.
Explorer Scouts are young people, usually aged between
