Group Camp – June 2024

Date: 28th Jun 2024 Author: Mark Eastman
At the weekend, the Group gathered at Stanford Scout Camp Site for our annual Group Camp.
This year we held it over the whole weekend, allowing two nights away. With all sections from Squirrels to Explorers and our Active Support Unit represented along with their parents, they enjoyed a relaxed weekend in camp.
Friday night saw a bar-b-que, a game of rounders and finished with a camp fire.
Saturday saw a day of inflatables, catapult building, tomahawk throwing and craft. In the evening we had a Eucharist in the Chapel with Rev Christine from our Sponsor St Margaret’s Church, Ifield. We then had a rematch in the Rounders and concluded with a camp fire.
Sunday saw a tug of war competition and then a morning of backwood cooking and Tomahawk throwing, with the afternoon for striking camp. A great weekend of relaxed camping with great company.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
