25th/26th February 2012

On February 22nd, the Scouting Movement worldwide celebrates Founder's Day, the birthday of its founder, Lord Baden-Powell. On this occasion two joint activities were planned on a district level by the Victoria Scout Group and the Xagħra Scout Group.

On Saturday 25th February 2012, members from all sections of the two groups participated in a hike to Ramla Bay. On their arrival, they were split up into teams which were made up of Venture Scouts, Scouts and Cubs. They took part in different games which tested their Scouting skills and their visual memory and encouraged teamwork, initiative and imagination. It was great fun for all those involved.
