Parkers Pioneers Explorer Unit has just returned from a fantastic week skiing & snowboarding in the Swiss Alps.
Explorers and leaders spent an amazing week on the mountains surrounding the Scout Centre in Kandersteg. Everyone had a great time whether they were a novice boarder or an experienced skier.
Evening activities included igloo building, sledding and a snow shoeing hike through the woods.
On the Sunday we were lucky enough to see the World Dog sledding championships with part of the course on the grounds of the Scout Centre.
Please take a look at the collection of pictures to see what we got up to, click READ MORE below......

Some of our "big achievers" were rewarded with the opportunity to attend the County Land & Water Activity Day at Luton Hoo on Saturday. They were lucky enough to meet the Chief Scout - Bear Grylls on a very wet and windy day, as part of his whistle stop "Bear in the Air" tour of the Eastern Region. The weather meant Bear was in car rather than the air, as the helicopter was grounded - which shortened his time at the event, however all participants got to see him. The Scouts took part in a number of land activities, fun and games, fire lighting, followed by some time on the water sailing and canoeing.

Following a six week kayaking training course at Willen lake run by our leaders last term, eight Linslade Scouts extended their skills in open canoes on the Grand Union Canal. The trip last Saturday covered 5 miles of paddling with a bacon roll cook up at lunchtime. For most, this was their first experience in open canoes, and all paddlers did very well.
