Back in January a gang of scouts and explorers from 12th Cambridge joined nearly 3000 others from around the country for the annual mudbath that is winter camp! From rock climbing to tank driving here are the highlights 🙂
It’s been another busy term for Raptor troop. Whether it’s been first aid training, pioneering or electronics at the HQ, or camps, night hikes and punting away from it it’s been great fun!
Still to come is summer camp but for now here are some of the best bits….
Back in March Raptor Troop spent a weekend at Tolmers scout camp in Hertfordshire for a couple of days of engineering!
Having been newly trained in how to create all kinds of contraptions from logs and ropes the scouts set about building everything from a newly fitted kitchen to giant catapults and culminating in the bridging of Cuffley Brook. Opinions may vary as to exactly how successful that was…..
In between the building of contraptions the scouts also got to have a go at branding (with at least one patrol leader looking menacingly at her patrol!) and tracking the local badger population.
With spring now upon us there should be plenty more camp to come…..
