Midland Canoe Club 2015


In July 2015 the Scouts joined the Midland Canoe Club at their (brand new) Cub House in Darley Abby for a day’s canoeing the river Derwent.  We have visited the MCC a number of times of the years and it’s always been great fun.  This year’s trip was no exception.


The first thing we did was to get kitted up and a canoe that fitted.  It was raining at this point but one minded.  Next it was down to the pontoon for launching!


We spent some time getting used to the boats and then plaid games with the club instructors including canoe bulldog. All of the Scouts really enjoyed themselves and many even tried to the big slide in to the river!


The MCC looked after us really well as they have done before and we hope to have more such fun days in the future.
