It’s the last weekend of September which can mean only one thing: it’s our group camp!

Friday saw the staggered arrival of 150 young people spanning our Beaver, Cub, Scout and Explorer sections. Once tent allocation was out-of-the-way, Campfire Dave led the group in a campfire. Thank you for coming down Dave. Much appreciated. The remainder of Friday was rounded off with a couple of capture the flag style wide-games plus hot chocolate and hot-dogs.

Saturday morning saw the usual early risers (5:30 am anyone?!?) Once breakfasted, divided into groups and details of the three zones we’re running today were explained, the young people headed out on to their activities.

We have a fantastic blend of activities on offer:

  • Archery
  • Rocket launching
  • Bouldering wall
  • First Aid training
  • Fire building/knife skills
  • Bugs
  • Dreamcatchers
  • Tie Dye T-shirts
  • Crate stacking
  • Birds of prey
  • Air rifles
  • Axe throwing
  • Pioneering
