Settle Explorers Get Active!

4 May 2019

Topics ranging from white water kayaking to canoe expeditions, and even kayak sailing, were covered in a session run recently for South Ingleborough Explorers and Settle Scouts. In preparation for passing the first stage of the Paddlesport activity badge, they learnt the differences between various paddle craft, the use of buoyancy aids, as well as the clothing and equipment used to keep paddlers comfortable and safe on the water.

Explorers have also recently taken advantage of the excellent climbing facilities at IngleSport Climbing and Caving Equipment in Ingleton. Many managed to scale the heights to the roof using difficult routes, belaying for each other, as well as trying their hand at bouldering. A good night was had by all!
