We’re Scouts: We Camp!

CookingFollowing on from the Beaver’s Circus Camp, two weeks later the Scouts were off to the County’s BIG Camp at Beaudesert. This was a follow up to the Born Survivor Camp they ran 3 years ago.

The Scouts were able to do water activities (e.g. kayaking / canoeing / rafting), climbing, abseiling, challenges (e.g. go karts / crate stacking) and survival  skills(e.g. cooking fish). There was also entertainment for all the Scouts.

The Scouts had a brilliant time despite some rain and the cooking fish was a particular favourite!

Then, the following weekend, the Cubs went off to camp at Barnswood. There, after a rather early start(!), the Cubs learnt to prepare and cook their own meals on campfires.DSC00459 (Medium)

As well as having the obligatory campfire sing along on the Saturday night, on Sunday morning three Cubs were invested into the Pack.DSC00473 (Medium)

All the Cubs had a great time and left the camp very tired!
