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.
The Patrol leader's camp at Tolmers has been postponed until next year. I will put more details here as soon as I have the details for the re-arranged camp.
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.
We're planning the following Scout camps:
April - Secret Nuclear Bunker(1 night)
August - Summer camp (7 nights)
October - Autumn activity camp (TBA)
Adults staying overnight on camps are asked to complete the adult helper camp form attached below.
