Scout Skills – Whittling and Map Contours

This week scouts had 2 activities running. Whittling and map work, specifically contour lines.


After a chat about knife laws and a reminder on knife safety, scouts were challenged to whittle butter knives. However, somehow there appeared to be more pointy spears 🤔😂


A session ran by Joan teaching the importance of knowing the contours on a map when planning any hikes or expeditions. Then a practical task using modelling clay to create models of Slievanorra.
