Camp 2017 Blog – Day Three


Posted by Admin | Posted in News | Posted on 04-07-2017

We all woke to a slightly grey but warm morning in Gilwell. Once everyone had had breakfast the scouts and Venture scouts split up for morning activities. The scouts were split into three groups for some Champ of Camp activities. This included a game of camp skittles, camp boules and frisbee golf. While the scouts were taking part in this, the Venture Scouts were given a challenge to build the gates for site. This resulted in two brilliant gates including a drawbridge gate. The weather changed for the better and it was a glorious day.

Following this we had lunch and enjoyed some free time. After lunch the Group were sent off on a backwoods challenge. They were sent into the woods to find a location to build a shelter in which they were going to spend the night. Once the shelters were completed and watertight (well reasonably water tight anyway 🙂) they were given the ingredients for dinner – foil packet stew with bread twists and nutella twists!

By now the sun was setting so the patrols settled down for the night in their shelters and fell asleep listening to the sounds of the nighttime wildlife!
