Bewl Water – Water activities for Scouts

Posted on February 12th, 2017 by Ashley Jones

Thanks to Alpha Scouts for the following report:

Bewl Water Sports Weekend 2015

In June 2015 4th Uckfield Alpha & Phoenix Troops took 7 Scouts to Bewl for their Scout & Guide weekend.  The weather was beautiful so we didn’t need to take too much in the way of shelter.

We arrived on Friday evening, parents dropped Scouts off and after they had pitched their tents they went of for introductions and briefings with the organisers.

On Saturday morning they went off again for their chosen water sport; Jay, who has much experience sailing, went off with them, Jonathan had a cycle around and I read my book in the sunshine!  We fed and watered them, made sure they were ok and took many photos.  In the evening the Scouts went off for a theory session.

On Sunday, whilst the Scouts were on the water, Jay cycled around Bewl while Jonathan and I had a lovely walk around part of the lake.  When parents arrived to collect in the afternoon there was an awards ceremony (more photos) then we all went home after a really great weekend.
