Scout Camps

Night Hike and Bivvy Bag sleep-out at Elmdon Lee - March 2017

A 6am bacon breakfast following a six mile night hike from Gt. Chesterford to Elmdon Lee. Scouts hiked back to Saffron Walden in time to be picked up at 8:30 am. A superb night with marshmallows and sausages, campfire and a million stars.

Winter Camp 2017 - Skreens Park Activity Centre, February 2017
Snow and sub-zero temperature greeted the hardy bunch of scouts who gathered at Skreens in February. Inflatable sumo-suits before lunch followed by bush craft, air rifle shooting and caving - all with snow showers. After a big, warming dinner of chilli with chocolate, rice, crusty bread and tortilla chips with toasted cheese - followed by apple pie and custard, the scouts huddled in their sleeping bags for a story-telling competition. Another fabulous trip.

Norfolk Coast Christmas Camp December 2016
Christmas dinner at the superb Wells-Next-The-Sea hut and a trip to see the baby seals with their winter fur on. Scouts were given a partridge each to pluck and gut for their lunch. Sunday saw time for a crabbing trip to the harbour at Wells. A truly awesome trip!

Bivy Bag Night November 2016
This was a tremendous success, with all Patrol Leaders attending for a night hike and a night under the stars in the group's new bivy bags.

Rain and cold did nothing to spoil a fabulous trip, with scouts cooking dinner over the fire and waking up to bacon rolls and tea.

We will return to the Elmdon camp site in the spring.
