Explorers Founders Day Paintballing

Posted on Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

On a bright sunny February day the Southampton District Explorers assembled for a day of Paintballing. We were kitted out with body armour, overalls and goggles and received our safety brief before we were set loose with our paintball markers. Throughout the day we had various missions to complete including storming the London bus, defending a castle and saving ‘George’ in the Tomb Raiders.

We used many of our Scouting skills of: courage; stealth; following instructions; being self-reliant, as well as working as part of a team.  We remembered our Founder Lord Baden Powel as a military man and reflected on his ability to turn his battlefield experiences into the positive youth movement that we all enjoy today.

Happy Birthday BP.
