With spring well and truly upon us and St George’s day burning a hole in the diary the group celebrated in style with a camp including 45 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers at Tolmers in Hertfordshire.
The camp had a back to basics theme for the program with all ages learning new or improved old skills including first aid, pioneering, (where some fantastic rafts and bridges were built), navigation and the use of axes and saws. This culminated in the explorers felling a tree for the scouts to use as fire wood later!
For many of the Beavers it was the first time they had slept in a tent and certainly the first time that it was a tent they had put up themselves! Some of the scouts and explorers may want to take note of the speed they put them up as well 🙂
A fantastic weekend hopefully to be repeated this time next year!
