Family Camp Gallery


A bit later than planned, we are pleased to present a gallery of photos from our Family Camp in September 2017.

We had mixed weather, but the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts didn’t let the rain dampen their spirits as they tried their hands at a range of indoor and outdoor activities. Some of the adults joined in too!

Thank you to Elaine Beckett and the Jones and Morgan families for contributing additional photos to this gallery.

Jamboree and Cub Camp Galleries

Cub Camp, July 2017

Things have been a bit quiet on this web site for a while, but we hope to provide some more updates soon, including the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts’ programmes for the autumn term and updates to the information on leaders, contacts etc. Further content will hopefully follow.

For the moment, we are pleased to bring you two new photo galleries showing off some of our latest exciting activities, including the brilliant Cub camp the pack has just shared:

Avon Scout Jamboree gallery

Looking good!

May 2016 saw 255th Bristol (Channel) Sea Scouts attending the Avon Scout Jamboree at Westerleigh. Over 4,000 people were present at the event, which saw the Cubs and Scouts camp for three nights and the Beavers visit for a day. The activities were far too numerous to list here, but ranged from traditional crafts to sporting skills and exciting outdoor pursuits. Given the freedom to roam within their designated zones, the Cubs and Scouts could not have wished for a more action-packed three days and nights and, mercifully, the first night’s torrential rain gave way to beautiful weather for the rest of the weekend.

Take a look at our new gallery for a taste of some of the many activities that the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts took part in. We hope to add a couple of videos soon.

Mad March Night 2016

Toasting bread
Toasting bread

The 255th Cubs marked the start of Spring last night by attending the Bristol South District Scouts’ 2016 Mad March Night at Woodhouse Park. Activities included parachute games, a search for numbers in the woods, toasting bread on an open fire, a team blindfold trail and nighttime versions of a coconut shy and ten pin bowling. The evening concluded with a campfire led by Avon Scouts’ Andy Scully, which was as entertaining as ever. A great, if chilly, evening was had by all!

We have a gallery with a few photos of the event.

Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade 2015

On the parade

The 255th Beavers and Cubs ventured out into a windy night tonight to join the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade. The Cubs carried large lanterns built to their own design, while the Beavers carried decorated lampshades. The parade along North Street drew quite a crowd – “It’s the Sea Scouts!” was often heard from the sidelines.

We have added a gallery with a few photos from the event.

Remembrance Day service

The 255th Bristol (Channel) Sea Scouts will be attending a Remembrance Day service at St. Paul’s Church, Southville, this Sunday (9th November). Please could all members of the Group attend. We will be assembling outside the church at 10AM. All Beavers, Cubs and Scouts wear full uniform including dark shoes and trousers and should be wearing a poppy.

Akela, we will do our best

Philip Burnett, known to our Cub Scouts as Akela, has been back at home for nearly a month now after a long stay in hospital following serious complications arising from a stroke and is being looked after by his family, including our former Beaver Scout Leader, Debbie Burnett. Phil is doing well but still has some way to go on the road to recovery.

In the mean time, the Cub Pack will continue to run in the safe hands of our former Group Scout Leader, Chris James. Akela, we are just keeping your seat warm for you. Get well soon!
