BEAVERS, Cubs and Scouts from across Knutsford and District Scouts competed against each other over the weekend to become crowned champions.

The virtual camp challenged participants to compete across a range of 10 challenges, from traditional Scouting skills to fitness to the toilet roll challenge.

Around a theme of ‘Compete Across the World’, each challenge linked back to a country, with Explorer Scouts and Leaders creating entertaining videos to introduce the challenges.

District Commissioner, Neil McAleece, took to Facebook Live on Sunday evening to announce the winners.

It was a closely-run competition across all sections, with some brilliant entries sent in for all the challenges.

The Beavers competition was won by 5th Knutsford Apache Beavers, the Cubs competition was won by 1st Knutsford Cubs and 5th Knutsford Wolves were crowned winners of the Scouts competition.

During his Facebook Live, Neil said: “The District Team who ran this had only met once before face-to-face Scouting was suspended, so to plan and run such a successful event is an amazing achievement.

“I can’t wait to see what they come up with when we can host a proper camp.”

During the weekend, members also had the opportunity to design a badge as a memory of the camp, with joint winners from 5th Knutsford Apache Beavers and 2nd Knutsford Scouts.

Their designs are being combined and will be created into a badge for all participants of the event.

Ali added: “Congratulations to the winners and well done for everyone’s awesome efforts over the weekend.”
