Upcoming events

Photos - Upton Shield, May 2015

9th/16th Cape Town competed in the junior scout competition called Upton Shield. The competition was held on Table Mountain, and 55 teams competed from all over the Western Cape. We are very proud that our team, lead by Aiden Murphy, came 10th overall. A fantastic result, especially given the team had not experienced such a competition before. Well done team!
