The scouts say.......

"There have been 2 recent camps-the group camp, and the troop camp. The difference (amazing isn't it!) that the whole group aka. beavers, cubs, scouts go on a group camp together to do stuff they can all do.

On a troop camp they go separately (oh gosh!). This means they can do activities primarily suited for them - e.g. Archery, Shooting (at targets of course! - the beavers did'nt have much meat on them that time of year!)

It is quite lucky for us on the front line- for shooting, one of our leaders hes a certificate allowing us to practice at our own hut- One of the reasons why we did only reasonably badly at the district competition!

For achery we have our own bows... i dont know whether we shoot legally so i will quietly slip away from that subject!

These 2 things allow us to do these rare activities quite a lot at camps. things the slim ones like among our number include is potholing which was quite popular-exept for when one among us decided they wouldnt break anything at all and went down there, quickly and conveniently getting stuck in a small pipe in the middle of the course!

Climing and abseiling are also quite popular, being supplemented by a water activity or two.  Unfortunatley, the only extra activity at tolmers camp was walking 400 meters to the camp when the bus "adjusted" an innocent lamppost!

We went to a trout farm in a later camp and caught a lot of fish. It was such a big camp we were able to play games in the woods! there was a long walking distance to the tuck shop and vending machines and lots of things to do along the way. We also had to collect our own water and wood-it was a good, detached experience for us all!

i refuse to say anything about the food.

we have a few new tents which us scouts always manage to get!

Our camps were enjoyed by every scout! (but not necessarily the tuck shop owner!)"

The leaders have nothing to add!
