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 14 and 18 years old. They make up the new section of the Scouting family. For more information visit http://www.scoutbase.org.uk/6to25/explorer/index.htm
