|Purple Colony Beavers have been on a hike as part of their My Adventure Challenge.
Part of their “adventure” was to build a den and to climb a tree. Both with great success!
Other activities for the badge have included learning the Green Cross Code, tackling an obstacle course and cooking on a fire.
Well done to them all on achieving the badge.
More photos from this “adventure” can be viewed in our Facebook Album.
|Purple Pack visited the Astronomy Centre near Todmorden as part of their Astronomy Activity Badge.
Split into two groups that swapped over during the night, the Cubs learnt all about planets and stars via a PowerPoint presentation.
A detailed explanation of telescopes of all shapes and sizes followed with a demonstration of one of the largest on-site in the dome shaped building.
Many members enjoyed “spying” on other members and their families with the “Camera Obscura” that is built into the main dome and is one of the biggest in the country.

|Purple Pack has recently been working on their Scientist Activity Badge.

|Each member of the team did their best performing admirably across all the tasks. In particular Erin was noted as a knot genius demonstrating newly found skills.
Once all the bases had been visited by all the teams, the points were added for a final result. Grey Pack were again Runner’s up only 2 points behind the competition winners Burnley.
Congratulations to all the members of the team who did a fine job of representing the District and Group.

|The start of May saw over 400 Scouts and Guides from around East Lancashire all join up to attend LEGSJam 2016, a County-wide Jamboree. Among the 400 were 21 Scouts from 38th Rossendale from Purple and Grey Scout Troops.
Friday night saw the Scouts take part in the opening ceremony where our very own Emma Cooper, acting in her role as East Lancashire’s County Youth Commissioner, hosted the show. Streamed live on Facebook, the opening ceremony consisted of dancing, cheering and lots of fireworks!
Saturday and Sunday saw the Scouts take part of lots of different activities around the camp with entertainment in the evening. There was a lip-sync battle on the Saturday evening in which most of the Scouts took part in lip-syncing to their favourite song and a UV-party on the Sunday evening – not quite your normal Scout camp!
Despite the cold and wet weather, a great time was had by all and we are eagerly awaiting news of the next LEGSJam.

|Members of Grey and Purple Beaver Colonies teamed up for an evening of fun at MFA Bowl Burnley.
