53rd Scout Trip to Karpenisi and Athens 31st March - 5th April.
On Saturday 31st March 19 Members of the 53rd ( 5 Leaders, 3 Explorers and 11
Scouts ) started a six day Scouting adventure exploring Greece. The first four days
were spent in the Evrytania area at a village called Megali Kampsi, near Karpenisi.
Activities such as river rafting, hiking, climbing up waterfalls ( Via Feretta ),
Geochacing and mountain biking challenged our Members. Also visiting some of
the villages and Monasteries in the area filled the program.  
Day 5 and 6 was spent in Athens, visiting the Acropolis Museum, the Parthenon
and many more local places of interest. It was an experience of a lifetime for
everyone who went on the trip. Should anyone want to see more about this
amazing adventure please click on the Karpenisi, Greece 2018 to the right.
