De Mohicanen


Ben Rhydding Scout and Guide Group is particularly proud of the link it has with a Dutch Scout and Guide group in the Hague. This is where the De Mohicanen comes from in the Group name. The two groups hold joint summer camps 2 out of every 3 years (one in England and one in Holland). We have been keeping this link going since 1948!
