The 45th Glasgow (Kirkintilloch) Scout Troop invested their new leaders in a very different location recently.
During a camp at Loch Venachar, near Callander, they invested new Scouts and Leaders out on the Loch.
The intrepid scouts and brave leaders had to stand to alert in their kayaks making the scout sign whilst the rest of the troop stood on the shore cheering them on, and waited for the inevitable splash.
In the end, all returned safe and dry to land. New scout Mathew Welsh who was one of those invested said, 'It was great; camp was amazing and fun, but the best bit for me was getting to take my promise in the canoe.'
The Group are always looking for new, interesting and challenging ways for their scouts and cubs to take their promise, they (and we) would be delighted to hear any amazing ideas or stories from other Groups.Author: Gary Bainbridge
