Centenary Camp – Dalmeny EstateCentenary Badge
The Centenary Camp went very well. There was about 1100 Explorers/Scouts/Cub camping at the weekend and several 100 day visitors on the Saturday. There was in the region of 200 leaders taking part. Activities ranged from pizza making in camp ovens, pioneering, wide games, to a big camp fire.
As it was a birthday party there were also bouncy castles, and birthday cake to be had.
It was some sight seeing over 200 beavers/cubs/scouts being fed on Saturday evening!
All those who took part will receive the Join-in-centenary 100 Badge (see picture).
There are lots of pictures of the camp on here.

Juniper Green Gala Day/Juniper Green 300 Parade
Saturday 9th June – 10:00 am Baberton Avenue
The Juniper Green Gala Day takes place on Saturday 9th June. And because it is also the 300th aniversary of Juniper Green there will be a parade of all the youth groups in the area.
We want everyone to attend if possible.
The parade starts out side the tennis courts on Baberton Avenue for 10:00am.
I know some of you are already taking part in the school Fayre later and the parade will finish at the Fayre .
Please wear full uniform as you will be representing the scouts in a very public manner.
This will contribute to the community challenge badge.

Summer Camp
Unfortunately we have not had enough response for the proposed summer camp to Arran and have decided that it was not feasible to run this camp with few numbers.
As an alternative we wish to run an activity weekend at Fordell Firs during the summer holidays. We will utilise many of the activities available at the camp site.
Please fill in the form attached to this newsletter indicating dates when you would be available.
