The end of a fantastic summer camp

Summer Camp 2016 Logo 2This weekend the Scout Troop returned from Summer Camp in Northumberland having made lots of memories through an adventure packed week.

Last week 29 Scouts went on Summer Camp to Red Steads Farm in Northumberland and had a brilliant week full of action and adventure. Amongst many highlights were a day hosted by the RAF at their base in Boulmer, and a two day expedition up the Northumberland coast.

The troop were also joined by 9 Scouts from the 2nd Jersey troop in the Channel Islands and made many new friends.

Summer camp update

Summer Camp 2016 Logo 2The first couple of days on summer camp have gone well, and the weather is being kind to us.

We arrived on site on Saturday afternoon and began the set up of camp.  All the tents and shelters were up by Saturday evening and we were able to enjoy a welcome camp fire and give the Scouts from 1st Ben Rhydding and 2nd Jersey to get to know each other.

On Sunday we spent time learning and practicing camping skills and getting all the tents and kitchen areas ship shape.  Today we have been down to the beach and spent some time in Alnwick to buy dinner based on the scouts own menus.

Some photos below.
